During walks with my dog late in the night, I observed this lizard sleeping on the leaves of the castor plant. He just didn't care when I tried to shake him or twist his tail!

Annie, that is a regular garden lizard found in plenty around here. I don't know its zoological name - could be regulus lizardus! There are so many that you cancertainly find a few fighting in the shade in the afternoons. I will try and post better, day-time pics sometime soon.

I looked up lizards on the computer and I think it is a chameleon. Does that sound right? They have really cool eyes. Could not imagine seeing one out in the "wild"! I used to have leopard gekkoes!!
