Sara, this is such an interesting story as I live in Chicago where we don't have lizards as in Texas. It seems that you were quite brave to handle them from your description, but it must have been a learning experience for you and your brother. It does look prehistoric, but it has some very interesting features. I remember my daughter bringing home a small chameleon from North Carolina one summer when we went to visit my father. It was creepy to me, but she kept it in a bowl with a few rocks and some water. It did change colors and ate whatever we gave it. However, she kept it on the back porch which was very warm and sunny. After a few weeks, the weather had started changing where the mornings were very chilly. One morning before school, she went to feed it, but it had died.
You sound just like me when you put the lizard inside your blouse for warmth. I really believe that children having pets, be they wild or domesticated, bring out a sense of responsibility and compassion in them.
