Camera Critters - WARNING!! Do NOT scroll down if you can't look at blood

Ahhh many days of unwelcome frozen weather here in SW Florida and the plants aren't the only things suffering.  The lizards have a heating pad in the winter, but when it gets REALLY cold, they have to come indoors.  Then when the sun comes out, they get to go out in it for a while.  This year, we put them in a giant wire dog crate, and put it on the yard wagon, so that I could wheel them out into the sun easily, move them when the sun moved, and keep their heating pad plugged in if still cold.  Here are Zimmie and Bobber attempting to enjoy the weather:





And here, unfortunately, is what happens when they have to spend days on end cooped up together and get either agitated or bored:





Zimmie got a little "haircut" and Bobber ripped off part of his lower lip.  Oh yeah - are we having fun yet?  Enjoy your Saturday.  Oh, and don't forget to hop on over to Camera Critters, by clicking on the button to the right.
Peace.  B : )

I guess you have to watch your fingers too. :)
Great shots!
Nature is what it is. Next time I'm cold and complaining I'm telling my Hubs he better be glad I'm not a lizard!

I think you might want to invest in another cage before the next (God forbid) freeze. Poor guys!
