We had a little lizard adventure the other day (little lizard, and little adventure). Dad was in the living room and he could hear Maggie whapping the back kitchen window. He looked to see what she saw, and there was a lizard on the screen. Then he looked closer and realized the lizard was on the wrong side of the screen, somehow trapped between the screen and the window.
Here's the "lizard under glass."
Maggie was very good about keeping an eye on things while Dad tried to decided how to handle this.
Josie did some investigating too.
It seems the lizard tried to hide in the corner but Maggie pointed it out to Dad.
Dad went out back to check and couldn't figure out how to get the lizard free from that side. One of the clips on the screen is broken, so the lizard could have climbed up and back down the wrong side, trapping himself. The other possibility is that we were playing in the garage the other day and this window was open, too. If the lizard was really sneaky he could have made it from the garage to the window, but we would have spotted him before this weekend.
Dad eventually opened the window and tried to reach up and grab the lizard, but of course he ran up and away. So then Dad unlocked the top of the window so it could lean in a little, un-did the screen and shook the lizard free.
Maggie and Josie watched the whole thing, but never had a shot at "helping" with the lizard too much. We're glad he is safe and free, but we miss our lizard tv.
