Tiniest lizard ever
That is my little dog Annie's nose and Michael's finger. Can you believe how tiny this thing is? Our first summer here Todd told the boys that they could only have dinner if they caught a lizard and brought it to us for inspection. On our mountaintop we have blue-tailed skinks, some crocodile-lizard type things that have outrageous jaws, and tons of these blue-throated lizards, of which this is the tiniest I have seen. Most of the adults are 5 to 7 inches long, and we never get tired of watching them do pushups in the sun.
