When we first moved down to Guatuso there were several sightings being reported of a creature that looked a lot like Big Foot. People got pretty excited until they figured out it was the new neighbors...  :D
So, how did I end up here anyway?

Bob, this may be an ancestor to yours....

 

Don K called him a "Scaley Bark", I know they will get your attention when you have slit eyes on your mind. This one was about 8 inches long with the tail.

Based on American slang, it could also be a skank. :)

Read a interesting article on the skink or skank, depending on what side of the Mason-Dixon line you hail from, while I was in Virginny earlier this summer. According to this article, there are two types of skinks, a Big Head  and the Brown Skink. Both are brown but the adult Big Head has a noticable big diamond shaped head. The heck to beat all is that both species juvenile has a blue tail and a barely discernable between the two. I've seen all brown and also the blue and thought it was two different lizards. We called them blue racers when I was young. Have never seen a Adult Big Head.

Hey Stew, That scaly bark will make you hurt yourself when you are peeping for Mr. Rattler won't he?  :D :D :D

Thanks guys. 8) I didn't care if it a skank or a skink. ;D  I was just worried that it may be a gecko here trying to sell me more insurance. ;)

Radar, your lizard is known as an Allegator Lizard for obvious reasons.  They are all over Yosemite.

Thanks OWW, I'll have to do some research on that.

Stew, I got curious about my scaly barks, so I did a search on Alabama lizards and on the outdoor alabama website they call them Eastern Fence Lizards. I like Scaly Bark better. ;D

Don

OK found a genus name. Sceloporus undulatus. There is some good reading on them and supposedly make good lizard pets.

I checked out both lizards and Don has the right one. The other had more of a shinny skin rather than scaly, also the range didn't match with the Alligator Lizard. Thanks to both for the help identifying the proper one.

Question??

I would like to know why the fish and game departments have such a hard time believing stories of cougar sightings. They always seem to deny the sightings without even checking into the stories. I have seen this in Kansas and also in Missouri. One was hit in Missouri by a car shortly after we moved here. Kind of hard to deny when you have a dead one to confirm.

 I think it has to do with  " if it is indid alive and out there " they will need to take action or plan on the preservation of said cat .....  Now if they dont know of its existence .. no budget needed for something that aint there .
