Aww! I think SOME SELECT LIZARDS are cute but most are horrifying, and they’re only cute if I don’t think about lizard biology.
I can’t deal with the regenerating tail thing. But I’m from South Florida, so they’re EVERYWHERE and people catch them/let them hang off their ears since they’ll bite and not let go/play with them. My sister used to take the skeletons of ones that fried from the sun and leave them in my bed. There is no escaping them and they’re the woooorst. The smaller ones, like geckos, scare me more than iguanas or komodo dragons, too.
