"We found this lizard on April 26, 2015 in our backyard. It was around 5pm I think. It hung out for a while then crawled under the fence into our neighbors yard.

"We've had other lizards in our yard and once one was stuck in our BBQ a few years back but I hadn't taken photos. Now that we know about this program we will participate :) Thank you!!"
