I opened the door; he didn't move. I stepped close thinking to startle him; he didn't budge. I picked up a twig and gently touched his tail, nothing. The poor little thing looks frozen to the concrete.
I know, I know. It's nature. Well, sometimes I hate nature.
P.S. Did some research and discovered this little guy is a lizard, not a salamander. If anyone knows his exact name, please let me know! (And I don't mean like "Lizzie"....)
P.P.S. I read that some lizards hibernate in the cold, but wouldn't they curl up somewhere to do that? He isn't hibernating, is he? See how much I know about this topic!
Update: Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god! He's gone! He was still there just an hour ago and now he's gone! Do you think maybe he was hibernating?! I didn't notice any cats (would they eat lizards?) or owls or birds or anything out the window by him (I'm sitting near it).....Oh my god! (And yay!!)
