What a cute little critter! He's almost as cute as the REAL rednecks around here (I live in Redneck Country/Mississippi)! #7297071

Sherran Andersen level-classic 3/17/2009 7:31:47 PM

Wonderful colours and clarity Sherry. I really like this. Sherran #7297146

Thank you so much Sherran... I am pretty pleased with how his photo shoot went today...
Hey Karen didn't know you lived so close...I live only 100 miles east of Mobile, AL. So we really don't live that far from one another... howdy neighbor!

Isn't this called a Valentine Lizard? ('Cuz he LOOKS like he has swallowed HALF of a HEART???!!!)

I love the shape of his head. If he was around in Fred Flintstones day, I bet he was used as NEEDLE NOSED PLIERS! Ha!

Love him! -Sis #7299121

Sherry McClead 3/18/2009 8:09:22 AM

Too funny Laura... don't know always called them green lizards... guess I could look him up...

Sherrybear #7299161

Laura E. Swan level-classic 3/18/2009 8:21:06 AM

I was just joshin' about the Valentine. :) #7299188

Sherry McClead 3/18/2009 8:28:09 AM

Well he is called a Green Anole... and are sometimes called "American chameleons" A pink dewlap (throat fan) under the neck is found in both genders although it is much larger in the males. Anoles spread the dewlap in defending their territories, during courtship and during threat behavior.
Just so you know.

Hey, I left you a message on my Alien Eyes and Kiss Tounge image. You whizzed by it. I think RED would make a terrific model and is just what we are looking for, don't you?
