|A light by night; lizard condos by day.|
While there’s still a slew of Caribbean posts to catch up on (keep posted – they are coming), mother nature in Jacksonville is just as exotic, sometimes! Manatees, gators, dolphins, lizards, herons, cormorants, and more (“Oh my!”).
Flick of a tail. Look again. There’s a carnelian Adam’s Apple bulging, lizard-speak for “Hey, Baby, C,mon, get down and dirty with your real local resident lounge lizard.” Given the proliferation of lizards, whatever they're saying or doing, it seems to work.

along our marina’s walkway.
Considering my aversion to mosquitos and worse yet, no-see-ums (click here if you’re up for a squirmy prior post on that) the local lizards get my top vote for scaly heroes in Jacksonville. Despite lots of rain and standing water, we are mosquito and no-see-um free here. Thank you.
