So during one of my back yard improvement projects, I came across this little fellow.
When I first saw it I was freaking out because I thought it was a snake. Then I realized it that it actually had itty bitty arms and couldn’t move very fast. This little critter was living in a part of my yard that I try to avoid due to four barking neighbor’s dogs. I had put down bricks to limit the massive amount of weeds that grow in this area. This bad boy was living under the bricks.
So then I started thinking I could create a nifty pond environment for critters like this and blah blah blah. I have too many projects going on both inside and outside of the house so I realized that this was a bad idea. Maybe in the future.
Here is a close up of this fellow and also a picture of what I believe might be its eggs. Did I mention that I found two of them? Lizard love – aw. Okay it’s probably a salamander? Lizard love sounds more romantic.
