Photos of the Week – October 23, 2020

Oosh. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I could use a little levity right now. I just want some useless nonsense that makes me smile. I went looking for that in my photo archive and came up with the subject of today’s post – lizard faces. Please enjoy these with no additional commentary from me. Have a good weekend.

  1. They are a bit silly looking, unless you’re their prey, which in the case of earless lizards is largely ants.
    Now I feel terrible. 😏❤️🐜

    • If it makes you feel any better, research has shown that areas with predators have more species. At least this is true for small mammals. The earless lizard might be giving you more species of ants to identify.
