Real, I saw one of those lizards on my porch last week. Normally, I pick up the lizards and put them outside, but even though this little guy was 'oh, so cute', I hesitated and didn't touch him with my hands. I'd never seen one before and wondered if they were poisonous, as well?

A retired forester wants us to spray the frog with sun screen, bag it up and stick it in a freezer.. I'm pretty sure it would appreciate being crushed to death feeling absolutely nothing much more than toxic shock and slowly freezing to death. Not to mention that theres no way in hell im placing a poisonous frog next to my food meant for consumption gtfo

There is another invasive Cuban species taking over Fla as well. A type lizard similar to but not the same as the North American Chameleon. They interbreed and pass on their genes. Fla Fish and Wildlife does not consider it problem. The species is moving north fast. 30 to 40 years ago all we had was Chameleons now I am seeing these strange marked lizards everywhere the Chameleons used to be. Seen a TV show on it stating the new lizard arrival is from Cuba and they don't consider it invasive.

I found one in Duval County on Southside and Baymeadows last week. I was pretty sure that's what it was, but this video confirms it.

Ditto wishmistress. I guess a silver bullet or a stake through their little hearts won't work. Sometimes the people in this town just amaze me!

("You spray them with that sunburn spray and it has chemicals in it and it actually knocks them down. Then you can take them, and put them in a plastic bag, and put them in the freezer for 12 hours and they are definitely dead," Carr explained.) HUH? WTF? What kind of an idiot does this? Just squash the bturds!
