    when I was a little kid, our back yard bordered on an undeveloped field, and the back fence was covered with ivy so deep I could thrust my arm into it an not reach the fence... when it was like that, you could find these little critters all over the place, sometimes they got stuck in the house with no food or water, and after a few months when you moved a piece of furniture, you would find a sekleton... and since it's texas, and the ground around your house gets wet/dry/wet/dry and the foundation is constantly shifting, (at least on that old house) sometimes they would get caught in door jams and crushed as teh house moved. very sad.

    They are actually very very cool lizards. The male has a gorgeous red puffer on his throat to attract a mate, I used to watch these little critters for ho urs at a time.

    Oh, and you haven't seen a true texas lizard until you have seen a full grown horned lizard... it's a rarity now days, infact, I have only seen them a couple times in my life... but wow. Looks like a 1/2 foot long ankleosaurus.

    That look different than the lizards I've heard called skinks. Maybe I was told the wrong name. I used to see them all the time as a kid. Anybody know what lizard it is (black and white stripes with bright blue tail)?

    FROGS, hehe, there are LOTS of skinks too, they are cool, when they are crawling they look like salamanders or something,

    yea, i use to breedd green and cuban anoles as a hobby, but once my 8 year old green anole died, i was heart broken and i quit. I sent all of them to good homes where they thrive today. Ram- im very sad for those lizards lol. Skinks arre very good pets, especially the blue tongues. Anole are the 2nd most poplular petshop lizards i think (iggies are #1, bit beard dragons come close, so do geckos).. The anoles in petshopsa re often mis cared for and die quickly if not given the rite heat., lighting, humidity, etc.
