Lord Lizard-Skink Is Back!! All Hail the Lizard-Skink…

My friend the lizard-skink, the reincarnation of our cat Pretty Ugly, last seen more than a year ago–he’s back! Well, I think it’s a he. Sexing lizards is not my strong suit. Also, erm, I think it’s the same lizard, but it might be a successor. Don’t know how long these critters live. But it was a thrill to see him near the garage, giving me that tough-guy baleful glance.

Here’re some past entries on him, including lizard mugshots. I still don’t know exactly what he is, but I’m glad he’s around.

    You have a green amevia by your house? I knew that Florida was becoming overrun with non-native reptile species, but this is particularly cool.

    I still cannot definitively say what he is.

    That sinks it: I have to come out there and ID it. Oh, twist my arm, because visiting Tally is such an ordeal.

    Why is it that some blogs just appear to get it right, thank you for being so useful.
