Company

By Tracy

So I was working at home today in a quiet house, alone -- as I thought -- when I heard a squeaking-barking sound from the window near me. It was almost birdlike, but not from any bird I knew. I crept to the window and there, climbing up the outside of the flywire, was a sleek, dark monitor lizard with an incredibly long tail. It just stayed there, clinging on and looking at me.

A lovely encounter with nature, Tracy.

Lovely to come across this. When reptiles make sounds it is intriguing.
