This morning, I heard several comments about the lizards. Oh, those lizards. Campers tend to be particularly fascinated by the brilliantly green reptiles. I had noticed that the lizards seemed to move a little slow and the campers commented accordingly. Then I heard one or two campers mention that the lizards were shedding. "There was this weird thing on it," one little girl described to me. "Mm-hmm," I reply. "That's neat." Then another little girl said, "here is one with two! This one is helping that one!"
What? What is she talking about?
I walked over to investigate. Now, I am no lizard-ologist, but I have seen enough National Geographic Explorer shows in my lifetime to figure out what the two lizards were doing. Explorer Elizabeth wanted to use this moment to share about the Circle of Life. But Awkward Elizabeth beat her, knowing that I was not ready to have a Circle of Life conversation with a 6 year old.
"Yep, two lizards! How about a hula hoop contest!?"
Oh, those lizards.
