    A native as well. They are all over my yard. I found Jethro very cold on my front porch last September. He was lethargic and I easily picked him up and put him in the greenhouse. He surprises me every now and then.

    Nice security guard. My Agamid Romeo only visits for a few weeks during the mating season, He and his harem find the floral display in the grow area quite romantic.

    Tell Jethro's relations that they can come live here in my New Mexico green house at any time. I have at least two or three different
    kinds of ants on the menu for them and a fine assortment of other insect appetizers for the them. Bona apetit ! AL

    My lizard was a rescue to. I found one in a water bucket. It got in and couldn't get out. It had turned a pale greenish grey and honestly I thought it was dead. When I bumped into the bucket It moved one arm very slowly. I picked it up and laid it in my garden to sun bathe thinking it wouldn't make it. Next day I found that it had made its home in my Faciata Bromeliad and its been there ever since.
