I don't know the right name for the lizards that can easily climb the walls and run on the ceiling in your house (in some tropical countries), nor do I now how to name rightly the "giant cockroaches", that can fly, and like waste waters very much, but I had once such lizard as a friend, and it could easily (well, after some fight) catch and eat these giant cockroaches (the size of them was bigger then the size of the lizard). Never saw these in Chile.

This is Lizzie...
Another home... another lizard
Reptiles can be great friends
She is pregnant in this image
Can you see her maternal glow?
She was so friendly, easily approached
but she wouldn't let you pick her up
I used to slap nasty, biting horseflies
she would pounce upon them...
A symbiotic relationship
I gave her flies, she gave me joy

I have seen some nice lizards in Chile
but they are so shy, so afraid
they don't know me... they run, hide
I hope to meet a friendly one, some day
I will also feed it flies

WE SHOULD - but many don't :(
many just think only "higher" forms must be respected
but it's a start...
I started with cats as pets...
watching my cats taught me many lessons
RESPECT, was just one

If I had a picture of my cat (R.I.P)
I would share this
I hope other allchileans will continue to share
higher, or lower lifeforms - as pets and friends

BTW Rune...
that's a cool lizard...
but you should buy a camera :P


BTW-2...
those wall climbers are geckos...
LOTS of fun when they live in your house
if you want one, and can't find one...
(btw - they do live in the North)
you can buy them, in Chile...

where can I find such friends in Chile
I do like BIG bugs
If you like BIG bugs, I suggest you should try Baja California Sur.
Can't supply any fotos because not only are they BIG, they're fast too 8_0

I didn't feed this one, on the picture.. It just lived there, near the house.. and liked that big stone very much..

Though, some time ago, in Fiji, not in Chile, I had a very nice one, and I gave (her? him? I cannot tell, like you?.. :alien: ) mosquitos.. Every day.. They are tasty, right?..

Yo... Y not?
Sidney... goes both ways
Gender non-discriminatory

besides... with spiders
it's sometimes hard to tell
Females tend to be bigger...

And Sidney was BIG :!:

Should someone, skilled enough in a science of reasoning called "formal logic", and with great ability in argument, come here and say:

Hey, G~J: To slap those "nasty", those "biting" horseflies -- that you call respect?

Hey, Rune: To slap those "nasty" and "biting" mosquitoes -- that you call respect?

"Respect life in ALL its forms", you guys say? Then, you guys know what? You better keep you mouth shut, that's what!..
:alien:

What would you respond, then?

:lol:

Ahhh... good point, Rune
Let me explain...
The flies were biting, painfully...
I am not a pure enough being to ignore pain
and not respond to it.
(...nor are you???)
However, I only "stunned" the flies
Horse flies are VERY tough, BTW
I did respect the flies, by not killing them.
Lizzie was opportunistic...
She seized the moment and reacted
Lizzie only did what was natural, so did I.

Only a Jainist might not respond as I did
I have never seen a Jainist being bitten by horse flies
I can only assume Jainism would allow this
...with a non-violent response, brushing away

Rune, you are correct...
when you and I become Jains...
only then can we speak of "respect" to all life
...without hypocrisy :wink:

But we digress... from the main thread
Any more Pet Pictures, allchileans...
perros y gatos?
any/all are enjoyable to share!
we will respect them!
