  Walking up our outside stairwell in the evenings all we have to do is look towards our porch door lights to see handfuls of these, creepy, almost see-thru lizards. When they’re climbing the off white walls, they are off white, but in Jewel’s hand they start to get some color in them. The first time I saw a five inch lizard run across the floor I immediately thought it was a mouse, but just shrugged my shoulders as soon as I realized it was just a lizard. Why mice are worse, I don’t know…but I don’t mind living with these creatures.

Jewel hunts for them. She often finds babies along the edge of the carpet and I’ve even found one on the kitchen counter.

The best place so far was the one that was hanging in Jewel’s hair, and would not let go.

This is what they mean when they say he’s hanging on by the skin of his teeth.
