Why take a photo of a dead lizard? I have three reasons.
I. I think the lizard's name would be Drop Dead Fred, in homage to the 1991 movie starring Phoebe Cates.
II. My favorite book when I was a child was titled Lizard Music. It involves Walter Cronkite and a lizard world. What else do you need as a child?
III. I know my mother hasn't seen a lizard since we moved away from Florida. And you won't find any of these in Michigan.
Also, it was posing for the camera. I mean, look at it.
By the way, check out this book. It's a children's book, but all the same, a great read.
