    Blizzard the Lizard just bit me and hung on a few seconds. The injury is trivial. She's 3.5 yrs 9 lb BW. She usually is really docile, riding around on my shoulder, letting me get her out of her house when she's asleep, getting in and out of a cat carrier to go to Petco to get frozen rats. Sometimes when I bring pre-killed rats outside to her yard she goes for my feet, but I intercept her first. Once she tried to bite when I was reaching to get her out from under the couch. She never hisses or huffs or any other display I recognize. I think she's miss identifing me.

    Thanks Walter1.
    Having fun on FaceBook discribing my arm:
    My arm is turning black and smelly green pus is leaking out of a hole where I can see bone. Other than that, it's great.

    Once it rits off, the story will lose its color!
