Additional Lizard; or, Heat Makes For Strange Bedfellows

A Farce, in Three Acts.
Well, no: it’s not really. The word “bedfellows” is used pretty loosely, too: I haven’t actually found a lizard in my bed since, well, the last time I found a lizard in my bed.
But I have noticed that the living-room geckoes are much less chary about wandering around during the day time in this hot sticky weather. (For the record, BoM tells me that it’s currently 32 degrees with 56% humidity. I would have put it as more humid than that, considering it was 86% humidity at midnight last night. But it is true that I don’t feel as close to suffocating right now as I did as midnight, when it was like drowning.)
Anyway, the geckoes don’t get much attention on the blog, because they’re usually fairly nocturnal, and difficult to photograph in low light, being much smaller than the water dragons.
But here he is, clinging to what now looks as though it’s a slightly grubby cornice.
And I think that means all our lizards have now had a look-in on the blog, assuming this guy also stands in for the other two geckoes who live in our living room.
