Foto Friday: Godzilla Trapped!

This is what I saw in my shop one day, when I looked up to see what was fluttering/flapping on the wall behind me!



So okay... this is not Godzilla... this is just a poor lizard... but 'Godzilla' made for a more catchy title, didn't it? :D

Anyway, this poor lizzy (I think she came with my shop, unless that was some other lizard and I've mixed them up now 'coz they all look so alike!) was stuck in a tiny hole in the center of the cover of that electric connection box on the wall! And she was flapping her tail wildly, trying to get out... or in... I couldn't really make out!

I'm guessing, the direction wouldn't have mattered much to her at that time. Her sole intent must have been to get her ENTIRE body on ONE side of that cover! To me, it seemed an impossible goal to achieve with THAT waistline!

Anyway, I, immediately, fished for my camera in the drawer of my table, the customer completely forgotten for the time being!

Lizzy sensed the attention, I think, 'coz she stopped flapping her tail and became absolutely still. I got my picture. And then there was nothing else I could do. So I went back to attending to the customer.

Dad and I left for lunch soon after that. When I returned a couple of hours later, Lizzy was nowhere to be seen. For several days after that, we had no clue what happened to her. Whether she died in that hole, or escaped... no clue whatsoever!

Then, a few days ago, she resurfaced! As much a fatso as she looks in this picture! :D

Sighhh! Life is back to normal now. I am so happy. Except, of course, when she's in a "hurry" to grab an insect, 'coz she can be really disruptive to the immaculate display in my shop during one of those phases.

P.S. - In case you're wondering about my inexplicable fondness for Lizzy, then you MUST read this earlier post on 'Kaddu Vs. Lizzy'. You probably haven't read it yet.

Shilpa Garg said...

Gosh! These Lizzies are pretty persistent pests! No wonder, it was out and not inside the connection box. I HATE them especially when they are in the kitchen. A great capture by the way :D

Ha, that title grabbed my attention indeed. I recently had one stuck in my garage door, poor lizard. Thanks for sharing!

Chicky said...

Hahaha! Really, Parul? But the poor thing can't even move! :D

Chicky said...

Yeah... that's true, Shilpa. They're certainly not welcome in the kitchen or even the bathroom! I don't really mind them in other places of the house. They eat insects, you see. And I don't like insects.

Chicky said...

Hehe! I knew it would, blogoratti! :)
Did you know that lizards eat their own kind? My Dad just told me he once saw a big lizard swallow up a baby lizard whole!

Fondness?? Oh my god!! I am so scared of these lizzies...and they instantly make me go yuck!!

Chicky said...

Arre Princess, what's there to be scared of? They're so tiny! Yucky, yes... but scary, definitely no! And they eat all the bugs! Isn't that great? :D :D

Pooja Mahimkar said...

I am so scared of the lizards and had this happened with me, I would have not even be close enough to take a picture

Chicky said...

Hahahaha! You too, Pooja! :P
You all are exactly like my sister! Her reactions are just so similar! :D
