A Lizard For Daisy!

What in the world is a Green Tree Monitor? And what does it monitor? Green trees?

Mom saw this strange lizard at the Fort Worth Zoo, but it is originally from New Guinea. It is known for it's unusual colors, and it eats insects and lives up in trees. It has a 3rd eye to help with sensitivity to light and dark. It can grow up to 2.5 feet long!

I think my friend, Daisy, would like this lizard. She is a lizard hunter. She had better watch out for the 3rd eye though!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

That's nice. Mistress has a cool piccy of a chameleon in our garden but she needs to can it in.

Daisy said...

WOWIE! Look at that thing! I am a little bit nervous to read that some lizards have a 3rd eye.

J.B., I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoy your animal posts! We'd be honored if you would consider yourself an honorary caninaturalist: we've never met a cat more deserving of the title!

What I wanna know is where is the 3rd eye? This eye discovery is kinda like discovering how giraffes have 4 stomaches! Well, at least they have only 1 tail, like me!

Anna said...

JB this is really nice photo of the lizard. May I ask what camera you use to take all your pictures. You seems to have really good eye photography, or just say you have a good eye. Excellent. Anna :)
