I often encounter lizards in NID, they are a part of the landscape, sitting quietly on walls and ceilings, blending with the cement. They have little fingers that makes them seem quite human. To test one’s reaction I sprinkled a few drops of water on it, and a little pink tongue flicked out and wiped its eye, as quick as lightening. It did this several times in quick succession, and it was quite amazing to watch. Watching lizards stalking their prey is also quite a sight. We can learn patience from them. They sit still as ever, watching a spider for what seems like hours, and then at the last minute they dash forward and before you can blink the spider is in their mouth.
