I HATE DEM NASTY LIZARDS!

:iconbadgercheese1994:
Badgercheese1994 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Student General Artist
Back in the Summer, I had a panic attack, where damn nasty brown gecko was in a pair of shorts I was about to put on after showering, thank God it fell out before I put it on, but BOY did I scream. And just now, my phobia came back in full swing. Apparently, when I was outside today, laying on the ground, filming a scene, a little green bastard sneaked in my pant's leg. ( It's a pair of pyjama pants ._.) Now, me back inside, editing my video, feel this uncomfortable feeling in my left leg, like, something is moving in there, but I just think to myself, " It's the air," but suddenly, I place my hand on it, and feel something solid and think, " Okay, it's like, something in there, probably some grain like thing," but regardless, I take off my pants, underwear and all and toss them on the floor.. I stare at them, suddenly, the green lizard crawls out and on to my wall, leaving me screaming out, half naked, into the living room...

So, yeaah, I hate these fuckers, and of course, am terrified of them. Anyone have a similar phobic experience?

Lizards are actually pretty cute and amusing.

I usually avoid roaches, flies and spiders.

Other insects/animals beside those three: meh.

Whatever walks or crawls to my garden, dies in my garden. That is the rule.

It was pretty gross when my mother found a garden snake, I think it was, and she chopped it up. It still moved so she chopped it up further and.. yeah. :hmm:

Some snakes do. Royal pythons have vestigial legs at the base of their tails.

Some species of lizards also don't have legs. Many people often mistake legless lizards as snakes.
Here's how to tell them apart: Snakes don't have eyelids. Legless lizards do have eyelids and can blink, also if you grab it by the tail it'll drop off as a defense mechanism. Snakes can't shed their tails.

Don't geckos also lack eyelids? Which is why they lick their eyes?

There are some species of gecko that do have eyelids but there are more without. The ones with eyelids still lick their eyes to help keep them clean like those that don't. Leopard geckos are a good example of a gecko that has eyelids.

Ehhh, reptiles as a whole don't really scare me at all. The only animal/insects I'm actually afraid of are spiders, everything else is fair game.

I'm not actually sure why, in all honesty :| I find spiders really interesting and occasionally pretty but I can't stand looking at them or being near them. Arachnophobia is weird. :shrug:

I thought you meant a gecko wearing shorts. I was about to respond with "what have you been smoking?" or something like that.

But when a lizard starts making its home in your joy department then you obviously have a problem with surplus lizards. Not really phobia-worthy. :unimpressed:

That same gecko has been in my bathroom for weeks, until I sprayed some Hawaiian breeze on the floor, and he didn't come back again.

Lizards are the greatest things on the planet. It's a shame there aren't so many around here, but I did manage to find one under the treadmill the other day.

Actually I can relate to having a phobia of common garden creepy-crawlies that aren't spiders (yeah, everyone is scared of those, nothing special there :p) and lizards are among them, the smaller they are the worse it is for me too, I don't like the small ones since they move so quickly and can get into anything I have seen some giant ones in gardens (once in my own even, which was about 7-8 inches long) and funnily enough they didn't freak me out as much as the little ones that my damn cat insists on catching and bringing in, leaving me to get rid of them :doh: Then their tails come off and keep wriggling for ten minutes afterwards :puke: I'm not fond of frogs either, sure they look cool but I'd lose it if one jumped on me :nuu: Actually, come to think of it - I don't like coming in physical contact with any animal that isn't a mammal or bird. But worms, snails and slugs are the worst for me. I despise cold, wet slimy things, and I frequently encounter them (and almost touch them) when working in the garden. I'd rather take the spiders :p

I actually like snails, and let them walk on my hand :meow: Slugs do give me an 'ick' reaction, I saw one yesterday, I thought it was a leaf, and it freaked me out when it curled up. I saw a pretty big lizard a few years back in my vegetable garden, it was about a foot long. I saw a pretty big snake in that area too. The worst lizards for me though, are the really big 5 inch brown/black ones. I had one on a bunk bed I used to have, and it scared the shit outta me!
It looked like this [link]

I couldn't let either touch me, but I do agree slugs look a bit grosser than snails. Still, I don't like either, and they are garden-destroyers too once you get too many of them, my garden gets a lot (because I water it almost daily, so it's a "wet" environment that's ideal for them I guess) so I have to scatter some snail & slug killer pellets...to protect the garden from becoming snail-snack :shakefist:

The big lizard I saw is a fairly common one for Australia, one of these [link] called a Blue Tongue Lizard since it has a very bright blue tongue (which is sorta cool I guess) but seeing it dart away into a hole below the fence between the garden and the neighbours so quickly was a bit freakish :O My cat tried attacking it, and it snapped back at her even though it was still smaller, no harm was done though :lol:
