Not a Big Fan of Lizards in Vanuatu

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

At the moment, I am sitting upright with my laptop computer in my lap, furiously typing so I can finish and move. A B52 bomber just flew through the doors on my deck, buzzing my right ear, and rammed its head into my sofa. I am not turning around to look where it crash landed.

Although I do have to be a lot more cognizant of my surroundings, I've noticed. I feel it is necessary to watch where I walk and study the ground, the trees, the vegetation. I don't want to step barefoot on a piece of broken glass, for example, or a lizard. I don't know why but lizards scare the crap out of me.

My sister loves them and raises a bunch of reptiles at her Minneapolis home, incuding snakes, and she's madly in love with a rare blue skink. Me? Not so much. You can read more in my personal blog today and see photos of Port Vila, Efate Island, in The American on Suicide Watch and Clownfish in Vanuatu.

It'll be awhile before I get the image of a Shiraz sipping beetle out of my head!  I can handle lizards however.  Every family seeems to have at least one weirdo who likes reptiles.  In my family, it's my middle daughter, and all of her kids.

In a million tries I don't think I could actually step on a lizard Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents nor would I want to. We have anoles here and in the morning when I leave the house they run toward it and at night they run away as I move down the walkway. I don't stutter step as I did to avoid them years ago and never squished a one. The clownfish story creeps me out a little though!

Clownfish have sex changes.... who the hell knew?  And now I want to watch finding Nemo again.

BTW- I too am scared of those little baby dinosaurs.

You never know what you are going to learn on your blog.  Who would ever have guessed clownfish had a hierarchy and males could change sexes to be female leaders.
