Help! There is a anole loose in my house.

Recommended Posts

Opened the cover to feed crickets and today he was FAST and jumped about 7 inches in the air and took off. The cat and dog have not found him yet....

 

better find him before I go to bed....

 

I hope eating anole's aren't poisoness to other pets.....?

I didn't know what it was before 2 weeks ago...

 

 

My brother's bright idea (are you sure he's 28?) was since he got out before feeding time, maybe he's hungry, and if I put a cricket in the LR floor, he'll come out for it! WTF? uh, no.

Isn't that just a regular ole lizard?

 

Leave him in the house....no roach problems.

 

I used to keep several in my room while growing up. (well actually they would find their way into my room). I had a large Magnolia right next to my window....therefore, I would always end up with a roach or two in my room (and roaches are my worst phobia).

 

Keep Lizards = no roaches. I'm cool with that. :D

 

Although it was sort of gross in the middle of the night to hear this big CRUNCH. But I sure did sleep better knowing some creepy-crawly wasn't getting on my bed while I was sleeping. :)

I believe he was just spotted, I hear a hiss and a ruckus in the next room, cat is on guard... but I don't see the little bugger...

 

 

How can I go to sleep knowing there is a freakin lizard loose in the house?

 

That's what I get for allowing my house to become Animal Planet.

DD was looking over my shoulder while I was reading this thread, and now she wants one. :clapping:

 

They're actually hi-maintance.... the Petsmart guy told me no, but when I went home and looked them up, they are.

If you want some more, I had 3 of them hanging out on the windowsill this morning - YAY spring! :wave:

Uh....just open the door and one will come in.

 

I can't believe people would buy something they can go get out of their back yard. I thought lizards were pretty much all over the country....sorta like squirrels and garden snakes.

I don't think we have them around here... maybe too cold in the winter? I've never seen one before.

Ya know last year (sometime, can't quite remember when) I was sitting out on my moms screened in porch. I was watching two of them mate.....hanging upside down and hanging on to the ceiling with their back claws. It was really wild.

 

I think I might have gotten a picture of it....I have just never seen them do it like that before.

 

Of course my mother was flabbergasted that I witnessed two lizards doing "that"...and on her back porch at that.

 

I told her not to worry...that I am sure they were married. :grin:

That are not everywhere. We are in the Northeast and we do not have lizards like that. I think they live in more tropical areas.

Yup. They're all over the south. I've never seen one in the northeast. :)

I somewhat had the same discussion with a friend of mine who paid $500 for a little designer dog (that she carries in her little LV bag).... asking why she would pay for a dog, when a really great one can be found at the pound and adopted for less than $100 (and it includes some shots).

 

her answer? why would I want a mutt? :good::)

 

some are mutts, and some aren't, you never know what you'll get there. Anyway, you comment made me think of that comment.

 

 

We paid $4.99 each for them... so I guess maybe in the southern states they are more common, but never seen one in KC.

This gives me an idea for an internet business.... :angry:

 

Do you think people will pay more for skinks?
