Mad Lizard

Found a lizard on the sidewalk in my backyard that appeared to be dead. I was surprised because it was a big one, and it didn't look squished or anything. When I went to poke it with a needle to see if it really was dead, it turned, opened its mouth really wide (I guess he was trying to show his teeth, which is funny cuz he didn't have any; I guess he was showing me his powerful gums... man I was scared... not) and it hissed at me. I took a picture and then it scampered off behind some pots.


  1. There's these lizards I occasionally come across when I'm at home that do PUSH-UPS! It's awesome. I don't know why they do them.. probably to attract all the cute girl lizards.

  2. oh my gosh. i totally learned about push up lizards in my biology class. it's a behavioral trait... most likely to attract mates like you said. i even learned they can be classified into species by how they do the push-ups. Cool right?..... right? haha
