All Creatures Great and Small

Another post in my continuing effort to introduce you to all the creatures we have. This is Na'Toth (props to anyone who gets that reference), the only scaly one of our bunch. She's a northern fence lizard who developed such an immediate liking to my husband that we assumed she was a domestic pet that had either escaped or been put out. It took us two weeks to figure out what she was and realize that she was probably 'wild'. By then she had settled in to her terrarium and was happy to eat crickets from the hand. She's been with us for two years. Watching her hunt moths (and doing a hang twenty off the wire mesh cage topper) is like having a teeny-tiny Jurassic Park in the house.
