Name That Tune That Features This Critter
updated: Mar 20, 2017, 2:13 PM

By Christopher Williams

I see these beauties a lot less than the more common sagebrush and fence lizards, but every time I see one, I spend the rest of the day humming that classic 70s song that mentions these guys, or clouds shaped like them "in the air" while chewing on a piece of grass, walking down the road.

This is the time of year when the lady lizards of this species hunt up a place to lay their eggs. I used to see them in the garage a lot in march but the last few years I have had a few walk in the house.

There would be a lot more Alligator lizards in my yard, if my jerk neighbors kept their three cats off my land.

A good two minute full pressure hose down will permanently change a cat's attitude. Gotta catch 'me first though, and the shower is a two person job, one to hold the feline firmly by the scruff, and the other to play fireman.

687 - Instead of torturing the cat, who is just doing as nature dictates, why don't you give its owner that treatment?

688 Domestic cats are not part of nature.

688-just doing as nature dictates is a remarkably stupid defense. Should we just let alligators (real ones) run around eating our dogs, cats and small children for that reason? geez

"Some people say his town dont look good in snow. You dont care, I know, oh oh oh oh oh oh...." :-) Thank you for the reminder, now I will be humming Ventura Highway by the band America all day now :-)

And 692 wins the prize for false equivalency!

Not false equivalency at all. That argument is used to dismiss uncomfortable facts that rebut a biased position that one holds for emotional or other non-rational reasons. Defending the failure of pet keepers to impose limits on the destruction their pet does because of the natural impulse of the pet to kill other things is not different than supportng a society that let alligators roam free to do their thing. Like it or not. BTW where would you draw the line between animals that are allowed to kill freely and those that are not and where would you draw the line between what they are allowed to kill and what they are not allowed to kill?

Ahhhh, Summerbreeze, Seals & Crofts, makes me feel fine and one of my favorites to make me smile all through life, sends me right back to my childhood and seeing that curtain with mom behind it in the kitchen making dinner. Thanks for the memory. We've been watching an alligator lizard we rescued from a cat in our yard, it's tail is growing back and it's getting larger every year, pretty cool!

If only I could hose down my irresponsible cat-owning neighbors. Alas, I must let karma do its thing.

Tell me about the cat owning neighbors, I used to go out and see rabbits playing out in my yard and lizards all over my driveway. Last week I heard this weird shrieking sound I have never heard before and found one of my neighbors cats had cornered a baby bunny and I had to chase that cat away.
