What is in your back yard? Since we live on a an island located in the middle of a shrinking rain forest, our backyard has a few different animals than you might have. There are lizards running through our yard on a regular basis. Why running, well we have dogs protection, so when they lizards come into the yard they find a few big dogs coming after them. These lizards come in a variety of colors and sizes. As you might expect most of them are small in size though we do occasionally get a bing one in the yard. We think our old cat tried to eat one some time back. He came home with a few strange injuries that left him laying around for about a week as he healed. So back yard watching for us can be interesting.
