🙂 I mean real lizards. I've seen a few the first day in the house, now they seem to be in stealth mode but I still find their droppings here and there. Is this from lizards - or are those invisible mice? Will it ever stop? Do I need to catch them? I really hate harming wildlife (with exception of mosquitoes), on the other hand finding lizard poop in my bed was not particularly pleasant 🙂
LOL... good luck with the catching part. ok, so what do the droppings look like? little lizard poo is kinda ovalish, palm rats poo is more round and several at a time... You dont really want to get rid of the little lizards in the house since they eat mosquitos and other insects, they are very harmless and cute. I understand that cute only goes so far when you find droppings on your sheets. If your house/apt hasnt been lived in for some months the lizards may have taken up house, but they will dwindle shortly when they know you are around.
It is island living, be thankful it was a large tarantula!
🙂 Well, looks more like lizard then based on the description. The house was empty for a while indeed. The first night one of these guys fell on my computer keyboard just as I was typing something, that was interesting.
I guess I'll just keep vacuuming and hope they stick to doing their business on the floor rather than kitchen counters or beds 🙂
I certainly can't explain it, but maybe you guys can...why are lizard droppings so much more preferable to mouse droppings? I had a mouse problem and got a cat (which fixed it). One day I noticed a dropping on my counter. I inhaled sharply and got really close to it--fearing it was a mouse dropping (OH NO--THEY'RE BACK!!!), then I saw the telltale white spot and said, "phew!".
Then I thought about it and laughed...why the heck is lizard crap better? I don't know; but it is.
I think I am happier about lizard poop than other kinds of poop because I like lizards. I saw one eat a giant tree roach the other day and Tabra saw one muncing on one of our huge huntsman spiders we get here in the rain forest. I will happily take liard poop over giant spiders and flying roaches any day!
Lizard poop looks like mouse poop but there is a little white blob on one end of the lizard poop.
The white blob is uric acid-- it's their equivalent of urine, how they excrete their nitrogenic waste.
Birds, reptiles, and amphibians excrete their gastrointestinal and renal waste via a cloaca. Poo and "pee" from the same orifice.
