My kids are desperate for pets. "When we will get another dog" is a daily discussion in our house (that always ends with no promises.) So for now, they are happy to care for the army of lizards inhabiting our back yard. They catch them, name them, keep them for a day or two, release them, and then re-catch them (because for some reason these little guys actually stick around even after being carried in the fist of a five-year-old for days on end!) Last week they were all shedding their skin (look close at the one below), and lately they are tiny so I think it's the new babies coming out to play. It's going to be one long lizard-filled summer here in Florida.
