EEwwwwww!!! A dead lizard is a good lizard, but live ants? Not so good!

I would have LOVED to see your face! :) Now, come on... 'You know he was just as scared as you were' right?? (Oh, the many times my mom would say that!! LOL)

But, seriously now... I have NO CLUE about lizards!! What was he? Friendly? Bites? Poisonous?

Yes, Kirsten, it was in your office.

Yes, Mom, it was horrific to see a trail of ants "dismantling" the ex-lizard. ("He has ceased to be! He's expired and gone to meet his maker! He's a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace!...His metabolic processes are now history! He's off the twig! He's kicked the bucket, he's shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-LIZARD!")

And Melanie, the only thing worse than a dead lizard is one that is alive and unpredictably dashing and darting in many different directions. YIKES! (Apparently, lots of people love them and are grateful for their bug-eating diets, but Falisha & I are completely creeped out by their lizard ways.)
