We need a field guide for the back yard.
Looking out my kitchen window yesterday, I found these guys enjoying a little shade and keeping guard on the back yard. Look carefully at their feet. Not exactly claws, but …
There may have been heart palpitations on my part. And I may never go in the back yard again. I’m not a fan of reptiles. But I have friends who are so I turned to Facebook for identification. We have juvenile iguana family lizards, possibly basilisk lizards (Those are also called Jesus lizards because of their ability to “walk” on water.).
The word “juvenile” worries me… That means they are going to get bigger.
