Scary LIzard

I am really afraid of lizards. I would probably drop like a stone if I came face to face with this beauty in the confines of a room. But they fascinate me with their colours and reptilian noses and ears. The colours on this one were particularly lovely and his pink mouth is almost scandolous in its pink-ness. Godspeed Lizard. Just not in my path

If you have lizards in your garden, they are eating things that eat your garden. Awesome!

My son had pet snakes and lizards. I like the lizards better than the snakes. I think yours is cute!

I'd never thought I'd say this for a lizard but that one is beautiful!

HI Everyone,
Thanks for the comments. :)
These lizards were shot when I passed through an exhibition at the Musuem of Natural History in New York at Christmas. They had a live exhibition up. Believe me, that's the only way I would get close enough to photograph them.
We do have in the garden and I really like them because they eat mosquitoes and slugs etc.
But we don't have exotic ones like Mr. Pink Mouth.
