I finally did it. I finally fulfilled a life-long dream and caught one of the lizards that runs around the ceiling. Please, sit down, no need for applause. Ok, maybe a little applause, and you may lavish me with your credit card numbers as well. 😉
Future Lizard-Wranglers of tomorrow may wonder how I managed to trap and then photograph a reptile that normally runs on the 10-foot ceiling or somewhere near it. I am a kind Lizard-Wrangling man, I will give them instructions.
Step One: Walk into your bedroom and turn on the lights.
Step Two: Notice an unusually large lizard at roughly eye-level very near to the light switch you just flipped.
Step Three: Shriek and run out of the room.
But wait, there’s more!
Step Four: Return to your room with a fish bowl and a vengeance.
Step Five: Chase the lizard all over the room, willy-nilly, being careful not to drop the glass fishbowl, or yourself as you leap from bed to bed to chair. (lizards prefer the higher latitudes you know)
Step Six: Carefully creep up to the lizard (once you’ve tuckered the poor thing out by chasing it all over creation and into a corner) and put the glass bowl neatly over it.
Step Seven: Rejoice.
Ha ha! Captured lizard photo HERE!
no lizards were hurt in the making of this blog.
