You need to make a lizard noose, very simple, very easy to catch lizards! Just gotta be gentle!

Fun vid.

Yeah, this was sort of a spur of the moment thing. Made for better video too!

Lou, I was honestly expecting Benny Hill chase music to start playing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK6TXMsvgQg
:D

Looks like you all had a fun time. And cool that you got to hang with Ian: he's a nice guy.

Damn, I wish I would have thought about the Benny Hill music. Of course, all the kids wouldn't have a clue as to where it came from.

Yeah, Ian's cool. Sadly, I didn't find any snakes until he had left already. Next time.

Aww shucks, y'all are too kind. I wouldn't have seen a desert iguana this trip on my own and owe it to Lou for pointing me at a really good site that had many dozens of these heat loving lizards. Everyone had a blast. I learned a lot about finding/catching desert iguanas by hand and I think I was more charmed by them than the chucks (which were still charming indeed!). Thanks a bunch Lou! I've got big socal herping video coming in probably 3-4 weeks... I hope... but there is also a LOT of herping to do right now too! :crazyeyes:
