Last night, they found this unexpected visitor on our porch! He/she measured about 5 to 6 inches long. My husband said it looked like a mutant salmander! According a to friend, her father called it a "water dog" - some sort of lizard. I did a little research on the Internet. They are mainly used for bait to catch catfish.
Unfortunately, Mr or Ms Lizard didn't last very long because Gus, our cat, came along and bye-bye lizard. We are not entirely sure the cat had lizard for dinner. Let's just say, the cat was there and there was no sign of the lizard. So we are hoping that the lizard scurried away to safety. But, you know how nature is!
