A lizard in Roslindale

OK, OK, it was more of a loungin' lizard, soaking up the sun outside the Citizens Bank on South Street in Roslindale Square.

Adam Kessel, who found the wee beastie this morning, took it home and put it in a comfy box for safe keeping until the owner shows up.

Seems a colony of Italian Wall Lizards has established itself in the Fenway Victory Gardens. They normally couldn't survive our winters, but the gardens are full of warmth-supplying mulch.

Massachusetts hasn't had any lizards of the reptilian variety since the five-lined skink went extinct here.

Lizard in downtown Boston

Graham Shepherd reports he was walking on School Street this morning when he tripped over "this huge LIZARD."

He reports Animal Control came by not long after to scoop the lizard up. No word on what the lizard was doing on School Street, but maybe the poor thing was trying to escape because it finally grew tired of its owner calling it Stumpy.

Toporopi reports finding an orange lizard just hanging out in the street in Davis Square. Jef Taylor identifies it as a rare color morph bearded dragon.

Based on the comments on the post, looks like the lizard will either be rescued by a group that specializes in such things or returned to its owners.
