Wonders of Nature

This little guy lost his tail. Maybe my cat had him by the tail and he just shed it right off. What amazes me is that by now, he has grown a new tail. Much like a Sci-Fi movie where humans grow new limbs.
We have a lot of lizards here and I don't have a clue what kind s/he is other than beautiful.
Lizards don't scare me the way snakes do. Why is that?

Great pics Sandee. They run away too quick sometimes. Not that we get them here. :-)
Too cold :-) :-) x x x

Sandee, you recognised it? How long ago you saw it? Wondering it always coming out around you ?!

This guy is either a Western Fence Lizard or a Sierra Fence Lizard. We do have a ton of them around our house since our weather is considered semi-arid. (You wouldn't know it lately with all our rain!)
