You Too Could Be a “Lizzardist”

Liz-zar-dist \’liz-erd-dist\ n [derived fr. ME liserd, fr. MF laisarde]: of or pertaining to the suborder (Lacertilia) of reptiles.  A collector or aficionado of lizards.  One that specializes in the scientific study of lizards.  Anything descriptive of lizards.

Lizard in training:  Mr. Hugo Gulfredsen, of Lakeview Springs, Georgia claims to have trained several lizards.  One of which is Sam 437, a common anole lizard.

“Sam 437 has performed simpler tasks–retrieving small objects and pushing buttons for rewards,” Said Mr. Gulfredsen.

“These little critters can get pretty ornery when they spot a rival.  However, turning regular faucets on and off could prove difficult without modifications.  Lizards, even the smaller varieties, are strong for their size.  We’ll work on fabricating a smaller faucet for Sam 437.”

  1. I would be ever so happy if I could go to Madagascar and see a chameleon in it’s natural habitat. I love their brilliantly colored beaded skins and eyes that move independently in different directions. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to do that?
    I used to know a guy who said the most useful thing he would want is a prehensile tail.
