Investigators were later seen searching underneath the pickup truck but it is not known if the lizard, of unknown size, was recovered.

Dammit, I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight now.

Wife and I own a beachfront house on a gulf coast Florida island. Salamanders are all over the place. Couple years ago, she was taking a shower and happened to see one inside on the shower door, I heard the scream from the ground floor. She was on the 3rd. Couple days later she found him on a curtain, again, I heard her from the beach.

It's Florida. Get over it.

This should be one of those "You got your own dumb ass in this situation, walk it off" things.

She freaked out over a salamander? Last I know, those were kind of fragile (not to mention cute), or do they all secrete poison from their skin down there?

Some salamaders are, in fact, poisonous. Not the kind we have, but....she's a girl. She freaked. It was hilarious.

Yeah, they're amphibians. They have to defend themselves somehow. And like frogs and toads, poison is one method. Just didn't know whether you had any of that sort down there.

Not sure about your gender implication, though. I would not freak out about a salamander in the shower. Okay, I'd be surprised, because how often does that happen. But then rescue mode would kick in...

She's a very bugs/lizards/snakes are icky kind of woman. It's funny because she can't handle them, or having any kind of injury, yet she cuts into peoples brains AND eyeballs on a regular basis while telling her patients to nut up.

/i had to remove said salamander from the shower while she was huddled in the corner
//in my experience, chicks are way more shrieky about the creepy-crawlies than men. YMMV

If flushed one just yesterday.  Was one of those invasive Cuban lizards that have supplanted all the native Geckos.

Should see how people react to Wolf Spiders.

In her defense, those things can be very dangerous

Fark those Florida cockroaches. Most roaches scatter when you turn on the lights. Fl Roaches calmly walk over, and turn it back off. And if you turn it back on, they make like Piranha 2, and grown wings so they can attack you from the air. Only roach I've ever seen were, after you stomp it, it just looks at you for a second, and then keeps going.

CSB:

At my parent's house in Fl with my (at the time not my ex) wife. There was a gecko on the wall (blended in quite nicely). I point it out to her and she sceams and jumps off the couch. She then informs me that "Geckos have no right to change color, and they should be pink or purple so you can see them easier"

That's why I never show my lizard while driving a woman around. I wait till I get her home and the doors are locked. Just kidding, internet officer.

CSB: As a kid in Florida driving to the store with my recently new step-mom, she saw a gopher turtle in the road after cresting a hill, and instead of just braking, she brakes and then violently pulls off the road, which almost sends us down this huge hill to our certain doom. "Are you okay? Don't tell your father."

I'm surprised and a little disappointed that lizard=penis took 16 posts.

Fark just isn't what it used to be.

If she freaks out over a salamander, I'm guessing you don't live on Boca Grande.

There's always the possibility they were in fight, and 1) he pushed her out or 2) she made a dramatic exit. The lizard story is nonsense unless they are from nowhere near Florida. Those lizards are all over the place. They eat the roaches, and are most welcome just about everywhere.

You sure you're not seeing geckos? Salamanders like damp places and generally aren't found inside a home.

Or maybe a skink.
 
2014-04-17 09:40:49 AM
Was it a real lizard, or is it like the guy who was eaten by a pack of wolves he thought he saw?
 
2014-04-17 09:55:11 AM

I dunno, a shower is a damp place. Actually, isn't basically all of Florida?

(Yes, I'd suspect a lizard, too...)

Where the fark in Florida do you NOT see lizards?
 
2014-04-17 02:24:17 PM
Anoles, sand skinks, geckos;
Cuban tree frogs, green tree frogs, bufo marinus toads;
Rat snakes, corn snakes, indigo racers, eastern diamondbacks, moccasins, coral snakes, king snakes;

Another night on the porch in SoFla.
