Lizard in Tennis Shoes



Because of our new puppy Sasha (she loves shoes...unfortunately) I've been throwing some pairs of shoes in the bathtub in a room off of our patio so they are quick to put on. These are my grubby, outdoor shoes...which were a favorite pair of tennis shoes at one time.

Last night I was going to reach for these shoes to go out to my backyard. I almost always look at the inside of my shoes before I put them on, since there are things like scorpions and black widows to beware of. Well this time the subject was a little bigger, but not as deadly. Peeking up out of one of my shoes was this lovely lizard.

It must have been laying on the insole of the shoe since his skin color and pattern was similar to the insole and was actually striped! After this picture it jumped out of the shoe and went scampering away. So, I have no idea where it is at the moment. Tail and all it is about four inches long.

He's awfully cute. I probably would have screamed before thinking to get the camera. I'm glad you got a photo!

I used to keep 2 in my house in North Carolina.. they were great for eating the mites on houseplants.

You got a cutie!

After a while you get use to these little creatures. Had it been something else I would have screamed.

Oh, my gosh, a plaid lizard! Fabulous! We had those little critters in Florida where I grew up. Harmless, but they can startle you when they pop out of a strange place.
