We see geckos all the time, and occasionally iguanas at a distance - sunning themselves along a bank. I have not seen, up until this point, a lizard as large as this so close - at my toes close - living outside my front door close. I can't say that I am afraid of them, but I was seriously startled.
Anyhow, as I made my return trip from the dumpster, I could see that it had parked itself near our car. I sneaked in to grab my camera, and sneaked back out again. He (she) played hide-and-seek around and under the car for some time, always tempted back out from underneath to the warm blacktop (it was an unseasonably cool day).
So - it was fun! A little wildlife at my front door. Now, I just don't want to run into him at night!
