this is my friendly lizard , i saved him last spring , back then he was only the length of his now body he had just ran out of air & stopped moving as i walked past him in a container with water in  it , it

 

took me 4 turns to get him reliving ,the little fellow held about a teaspoon of water in him i pumped out , so much for a little lizard P7090026.JPG

 

so now if im in the top shed for a day or 2 working he hangs around me there or the same if down near the hut regularly , he is roughly 11 inches now & i can get about a ft from him without it moving P7090025.JPG

 

the silly part is i talk to him all the time , i can use the grinder & bang & weld near him & he don't care , i reckon he enjoys the radio going low in the shed to break the silence 

P7120058.JPG this pic is just behind the JD Sabre  

 

this is it peeking over the gutter on the front of my hut above near the front deck      door P4120031.JPG

not too sure on the adult size but he wont get much bigger i think might get to 14 inches Maybe ,

 

as for eating him that wont happen as he eats the spiders & bugs around the shed & hut ,

 

i got a tennis racket i use to kill hornets that build mud nests in everything so i get them for him to eat when i can 

 

Struth Blokes BTW my 9 yr old  daughter would not forgive me if she thought i ate it , i have seen them around 12 to 14 "as adults 

 

it is actually a water dragon family long & thin

Is his name harry? (that will make since if you watch the British show death in paradise)

 

However having a lizard in your shop guarantees that I will never step foot in there :(

I'm curious as to how you performed CPR on a lizard. .  :D

It's pretty amazing how he has bonded to you. He might be around for a long time. Thanks for the photos.

I was viewing those pics and an ad popped up telling me 15 minutes could save me 15 percent.



Just kidding. :poke:



Cute as reptiles go, I always liked finding the newts around here as a kid. They kind of went away for a while, but now there seems to be a few more again. Really cool that he kind of imprinted on you.

Don't know if you'll find this reassuring or not, lol, but you sound like my kind of people. I have a weasel in my shop that I feed on a regular basis. Best mouse and squirrel control in the world. There was a comic strip that had a dinosaur in it called Garth. Cool name for a dinosaur relative.

We had chipmunk friends that hung out at the warehouse at kuhntown. They would show up in the spring and hang out till fall. Every day they'd come up and eat out of your hand.

Dont know how long they live. We may of fed generations of chipmunks

On another note. We all have heard of that guy who has a pet deer, fox, raccoon, squirrel, ect. This is the first I have heard of a wild lizard pet!

I dated a girl whose family had some kind of lizard for a pet. I never liked that thing. It ran around the house and I swear it knew that I hated it. As soon as I'd sit on the couch it would scurry up on the back of the couch and climb on my shoulder. I'd be all tough about it and act like I was cool with it. But really I was far from it.

I have a cat in my garage. He's use to most noises and some loud noises in the garage. Start a garden tractor and let it idle, that's ok, but if it's reved up, he hides under the car. He likes the garage and going for drives in my truck. His name is Ferguson, named after my tractor.
