Uninvited Visitors!! Blogtoberfest Day 11.....




EEEEKKKK!!!!! Yesterday my chihuahua was barking outside so I went to investigate! Usually he barks at air, I think he suffers from little dog syndrome. But I saw a scaly head pop up and basically freaked out. So then the labrador went for a look. I called the dogs inside and quickly closed the door!

Of course this would happen when Mr S wasn't home so I called him on his mobile and he said he was on his way home. Mr S arrived home and called Wildlife and was told not to worry it would move on in a few hours! Meanwhile watching from the window we realised there was 2 Lizards! This morning we got up and looked out the window to see them still there and basking in the sunlight! I told Mr S to call someone asap, we pay the mortgage not these reptiles so they need to leave! Finally we have Badger Rescue 1800 BADGER, on their way to catch the lizards and relocate them in the bush.

I hate creepy crawlies and reptiles and dogs are very inquisitive so they need to go before the dogs eat them. Plus I dont want the dogs to get hurt either.

And to top things off, yesterday when we realised there were 2 Lizards. One was biting the other and they were humping! Apparently its mating season. Now I think I will need therapy!
Since I posted the Badger volunteer and his kids came out and found one of the lizards, he said the other one has probably left already! He even commented that this lizard was a big one. He said it is a Blue Tongue. His kids werent scared of the lizard either but Mr S and I were standing right back because they still creep me out!
Our house is situated across the road from a creek so he said they have probably wandered from the creek and lost their way, hence deciding to hide out in a pipe in our back yard! Now we are going to demolish the pipe and the surrounding concrete so nothing invites and reptiles to our yard!

I can't believe you were scared of a poor little blue tongue lizard. You live in the country now...remember!

Pervy lizards making babies in your yard! You shoulda hosed them down :p

I'd love to take part in your meme but I can't seem to find it, although it's probably just me - I'm not very hip to all this meme business.

Humping lizards in the yard. What a treat. I hope you yelled "get a room" for all of us.

So were they doing it "lizard style"?
We had a copperhead snake in our backyard a few years ago. I can't even look at a picture of a snake, so to have one come within 10 feet of me totally freaked me out.
I called to the husband to come and have a look and he decided to climb on the roof to "spot it from the air". My hero....

I was going to say how lucky you were to have a pair of gentle Bluetongues in your yard, but after reading the post I see they weren't welcome! I made a pile of concrete in our garden as a lizard house to try to make homes for skinks. but I Do Not Like Snakes. Do Not Like.
