Salamanders are really cool!! If I could I would have salamanders, they are so hard to keep in artificial environments, they get skin fungus and bacteria really easy, the alligator lizard is still there I just showed my daughter, it didn't budge an inch
So jealous...The only way I'd ever see a lizard in my yard running free would be if one of mine escaped or someone else's in the neighbourhood did. I don't even see frogs or snakes, etc. I do see possums, raccoons, rabbits, tame skunks that scratch at my door, squirrels chipmunks and lots of different species of birds though.
It stays on the porch, been there over a month, without fail, every afternoon it comes out of the bushes from the same spot, goes to another bush and eats, there are a ton of bugs around!! American river is behind my house, I might name it
