Introducing... William!

William is the wild anole lizard that lives in the garden by our front door. He gladly engorges himself on the mealworms I leave for him. And he guards his food bowl to prevent other freeloading anoles from having a bite to eat on his account.

William sleeps on the aloe plant we have. We discovered him dreaming away when we returned from an evening walk.

Here's a video of him stealing pupae that my mom and I didn't think he would be interested in. The first time, he ran off with one in his mouth. The second time, he consumed one on the spot.

While William is not my kiddo, I still feel responsible for him. I bet he's the fattest wild anole in Texas. Expect high-quality videos of him as soon as I get my mini dvd filled.

Meanwhile, please enjoy this rehashed, modestly-edited video of Richard.

Richard, the beast of summer

Richard is approaching his growth spurt. He's also been practicing his "I'm going to eat you" face. If you look closely, you can see his perfect little dangerous teeth. I'd hate to be an earthworm, that's all I can say!

He has not-so-fearsome looks, too. Check out those killer armpits! *proud*
