A Tale of a Lizard

When it’s 40 Degrees in the shade, and you are in a Turkish Hotel ?  What do you do?  Go Lizard Spotting, of Course.
I first met this fellow hanging around on a wall outside my hotel bedroom in Oledeniz.  He was there in the Long grass above the Ground Floor apartment, and popped his head up to say “Hello!”… It could have been the water sprinklers that he was interested in – or perhaps the supply of fresh fruit dropped outside.  But every day i’d see him running around the big trees of the hotel estate…you couldn’t miss him really, he was huge!

I soon found out I was in the centre of a bit of a menagerie, with not only Lizards but small mice, cats, birds and bees on the plot (Turkish Honey – Yummy with Fresh Fruit!)
