Screamin’ Green

Crayola coloring sheet – coloured in by inky – screaming green

#cyw #screamingreen

Sure, you know how to make an entrance

carnivores on the lookout know just who to steer clear of when

roaming the jungle canopies

everyone gives you respectful distance

as they know if they eat you, they

might get mightily ill – and for a meat muncher

its not good if you look the same colour as your prey

night times make the herbivores smile – as you light up the pathways by moonlight

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!)
