Sally the Salamander

Ok…so she’s not really a salamander, she’s an Alligator Lizard. And we’re not even sure she’s a she. One thing that is certain, however, is that she/he was hungry today. I found Sally about a month ago while on a bike ride and brought her home to the girls in the back pocket of my jersey. Eva and I made a little makeshift terrarium for her (anyone have an old one they’re looking to offload?) We’ve been feeding her moths, ants, slugs, potato bugs and other random small insects. To my knowledge she hasn’t had an opportunity to sample fresh grasshopper since she’s been at Chez Weymuller…until today. Sally isn’t the fastest reptile you’ve ever seen…after all I caught her while wearing cycling shoes…but when that hopper made an entrance this afternoon, the hunt began, and it didn’t take long.

    how cool is that ? Peurto Vecchio is crawling with quick lizards and dusty black geckos. Pascale taught me how to make a noose trap with a long, fresh blade of grass. I’ve had about a dozen in the lassoo, but they’re so quick in the hot humid sun that they slip away just like that. Two scampered across my foot while making the break.
