I thought that species was confined to the Las Vegas area of the country.

Crap - West Palm Beach is exactly where we go in the winter.

Time to restock the ammunition.

Isn't it a little too early for lizard porn, Dave?

Well when you start shedding your skin that is basically an invitation for this sort of thing to happen.

While chasing down the destructive lizards, wildlife officials are still trying to get a handle on the python population.
Sounds like one of those problems will solve the other.

Those things are qualified for a Florida driver's license.

Ship 'em up to me in November, I'll ship you back lizardcicles for Christmas.

When it gets cold, does it rain nile monitors the way it rains geckos?

If that doesn't scare you enough, think about the fact that a Komodo Dragon is considered a type of monitor.

Also, when I first read that, my thought was it's the governor's cabinet members.

wiredog: Nile Monitors are semi-aquatic; they just stay in the warmer water during cold spells.

I had one as a pet; it grew from 1' to 4' in less than 2 years. Mine was very docile; it roamed around the house looking for sunny spots to bask in, and only hissed at me when I herded it back in its cage at night.

Unfortunately, I lost it in a house fire, so I'll have to visit Florida for another. Then I have to figure out how to make it look like a dog so I can get it on a plane.

If we don't guard against these lizards they'll eat all the pythons.

The one on top bears a strange resemblance to an unnamed NY congressman.
