Well, after learning this I moved him to the grass in full sunlight to see if he would warm up and survive.
You can't see it well in this photo but as he started warming up he turned GREEN! It was really cool to watch. The whole time I'm like 2 inches from him snapping photos of course and he just calmly watched my every move but still never moved. My husband again came outside to see the lizard and when he came out the commotion finally scared or jump started this lizard enough to move. Do you know where he went?
Right straight to me and up on my boots! It was insane and I've NEVER seen one do this or even get near you like this! And I've lived around these lizards my whole life!
It kept going too! It started climbing my boot so I stuck my hand by it...
And what do you know - it hopped right on like we were pals!
My husband loves this next shot he got - he said it looks like the lizard is hugging me in thanks for saving him. Hehe, I'll let you decide.
God gave me a sweet moment that day - I'll never forget it.
