Urban lizards

You wouldn’t expect to find lizards in the city, but the hordes of insects that descend on Japan provide an abundance of food for them. Geckos and skinks (some of them black with rainbow stripes) hide under the brush and litter, or cling to the walls next to the lights waiting to ambush their prey that are drawn irresistably into harm’s way.
These lizards are cool, but what Japan needs are giant lizards that eat cockroaches. That would be awesome.
