He looks like something out of Jurassic Park.

This giant creature from the dinosaur era was caught haunting North Central Arizona recently. The horrifying creature appears ready to swallow up whole cities in a repeat of a terrifying science fiction movie.

But wait.

Let's back off a bit.

Maybe when I quit dreaming and show you his actual size he's not so terrifying after all.

Except to an occasional bug.

I caught him posing on a hand-sized rock just below our bird bath.

Waiting for a drop or two of water to fall.

There are many of them around the neighborhood.

But I doubt that any cities are in danger of being swallowed up.

Anyway, just think of that Geico gecko. Pretty nice guys.


  1. Small but still impressive. And they do us a favor by eating pesky insects.

  2. Ours hide behind our metal wall art and do not like being hosed.

  3. He looks like a cold blooded killer!

  4. The lizards are so talented at eating the little ones we like less...

  5. Well, THIS bug is terrified! :)
