    The lizard in the photo has lived in my shop for so many years I couldn't count them. I don't know if it's the same one or how long they live but it sure looks like the same one. Half the time I try to look up an Ohio reptile I get told I can't be seeing what my eyes are seeing. I've looked at multiple lists of Ohio lizards. It looks a lot like the eastern fence lizard but not exactly like the photos I've seen. Maybe there are just a lot of sub-species and this one is not that common. Maybe it's just lived long enough to get fat and ugly (like me). They say the eastern fence lizard lives less than 5 years. This one has been hanging around a lot longer than that. But they also say they don't really know how long it lives. I just know he's been hanging around on that door a long time. He doesn't even run when I open the door any more.

    One more. This is a supercell storm forming over Kentucky. This is often how one of those mile wide tornados start. This one only produced a big storm.

    I'm in northwest Ohio, and the only lizards I've run across were the black slimy ones under rocks and leaves.

    Yeah the eastern fence lizard only lives in southern Ohio.

    Those aren't lizards, those are salamanders.

    WOC, if it had been a dry sunny day you'd have like seen some cool looking lizards at the Shoot, very colorful; there are lots in that country, along with scorpions and tarantulas, I just saw some on Friday, should taken a picture....

    Oh, man. I would love to go 'hunting' on that land. With a net or a camera, though. Are those critters also where Balota lives? Lizards and arachnids kind of make me happy.

    Go out to the Oklahoma panhandle (when you move down here) and you can see horned toads too. And dinosaur tracks.

    The only good arachnid is a FLAT one.

    I like this photo. Notice he has his dinner in his beak. This is a northern mockingbird BTW.

    There's nothing quite like a mockingbird. They are endless entertainment. They are amazing at their ability to mimic other birds and things like car alarms. I have them in my yard also. I wouldn't change that for a second.
