The outdoor life here is prolific and varied and it seems I see something new every time I open the door and step out.
Here are just a few examples of what is lurking just outside the front (or back) door. We take an hour walk every evening and the snails and frogs are *everywhere*. The frogs are huge and I’ve suffered near heart failure on more than one occasion as I stepped down next to what I thought was a leaf only to have it jump straight up and away. Scares me to death every time. haha.
The geckos are like crickets here. At night when I turn on the back porch light, it’s like an International Meetings of Geckos out there – dozens of them on the porch ceiling, on the walls, windows, chairs – everywhere. For being such little guys, their “bark” is quite loud. I’ll work on getting a video to show the number and hopefully catch a bark or two.
In the meantime, enjoy this little glimpse of our local critters.
