    Yes I know it's a lizard. What kind? It's about 4" long and comes out every morning, sits on the wall next to me (I'm in Marathon in the Florida Keys at present), bobs it's head a few times and then does this weird thing with its neck. I know the head bobbing and displaying are to attract a mate, but I'd love to know a bit more about it. Saw it grab a bug this morning - really cool (except for the bug of course). Any ideas?

    Oh, and this frog as well (top left of picture, sitting halfway up a stalk (keeping its eye on the corn snake below). These two delightful neighbors only show up at night. Frog is very friendly, snake keeps himself to himself. Any ideas what frog it is (or toad)?

    I'll leave a dime out for it tonight. Should be easier for it to manage.

    Possibly, but that would be a shame. He's a smashing little chap.

    Yes, I instantly regretted using English English instead of American English.

    I'll try again.

    Possibly, but that would totally suck. He's so cool.
