Some of you who watch me may remember the lizards that infest my yard (about 20 of them) and eat all the bugs they can find.
Well it looks like we have a new generation of chameleons who arrived in my plants today!
This one is sitting on one my Italian Basil plants on the back porch. The lizard is only about 1 inch long and looking for bugs. I always have fresh, insect free Basil thanks to these guys!
The baby should be green since he's sitting on a green leaf but I'm thinking it's so young it doesn't have the capability to change color in 2 seconds like it's parents do!
I also have a toad who has decided it will be living and sleeping around my Basil and Mimosa plants on the back porch. When I get the hose out to water the plants the toad comes out and lets me water it too!
It has no fear of me. Once he/she is wet and satisfied it jumps back into the plants waiting for bugs!
I've also got tiny tree frogs living around my plants. They are only 1/2 inch long and they chirp kinda like small birds. I can't get a photo of them since they move so fast!
