I am the Lizard Whisperer
I was sitting at the park the other day, enjoying the warm spring day, watching the kids play when I felt something crawl into my lap...no I did not scream...but just stood up and brushed off Mr. Lizard. This brazen lizard is common around here, he's called a California Alligator Lizard. Why he decided to make himself cozy in my lap I have no idea...but I feel lucky to have had such a close encounter with this amazing creature. He hung out for awhile and if I came too close he'd give me a menacing hiss...then he slinked away into the bushes. As a mother of two boys, I don't get the heebie-jeebies when it comes to reptiles. My son has a really cute leopard gecko and I've even had a giant boa constrictor come to my house for a birthday party!
