Mood Lizards

we lived in a mint green house in bermuda and the anole lizards hung on the walls of the veranda by their delicate little fingers and took on the same shade and sometimes they matched the sky when storms approached, we liked to call them Mood Lizards . . .  the cats chased them in the house and i frequently found their tails, the result of the cats managing to scare the anoles enough for them to “pop” their tails off, a wonderful defense against predators - give them your tail and get away with your life.
