Today It’s Uromastyx!

Uro-what?

Yeah, that’s what I said.

“Honey, I need a ‘U’ for my A to Z challenge.”

Husband:  “Hmm.  How about Uromastyx?”

Me:  “Huh?”

“You know, Uromastyx.  C’mon, I’ll show you!”

And so, Dear Reader, I shall show you the letter for today:

Cute little bugger, inne?  His other name is “Spiny-Tailed Lizard,” because he’s got a spiny tail.

My husband, the reptile whisperer.  He put his hand down slowly to attract the attention of the lizard.

I took this one to show off his spiny tail; but look at the bottom right of the photo.  Sneaky!

Tomorrow it’s the letter V.  What in the heck shall I pick for V?


Thank you for joining me for the A-Z Blog Challenge. If you’re blogging in the challenge, please leave me a link so I can come visit you too. If you have a moment, please check out these other fine blogs:

My theme on my Knoontime Knitting craft blog is Letterforms In Nature and the Built Environment. I’ll be exploring my daily round, looking for shapes in the natural world and build environment.

The theme at Noon & Wilder is The A To Z of Chicago. Since I live here in the city and we have our Chicagoland Shifters based here, I figured I’d share a window into the city, Noon & Wilder style.

The Nice Girls Writing Naughty have a new home, and we’re blogging in the challenge again this year. Throughout the month you’ll be hearing from each of the Nice Girls, and during the RT Booklovers Convention from April 12th to the 17th, you’ll be getting live convention reports. Join the conversation!

The Writer Zen Garden’s brand new website is up and running, and we’re bringing you posts from me, Noony; my partner in crime, Rachel Wilder (the Wilder half of Noon & Wilder); the talented Darla M. Sands – a blogger in her own right, see below; as well as Grace Kahlo, Evey Brown, and author Tina Holland. Check it out!

My friends who are participating in the challenge (and if you’re not on this list, tell me and I’ll add you!):

Write on, and Happy Blogging!

    1. Hi, Allyse! Thank you!

      I appreciate you stopping by. Hope you enjoy the rest of the challenge!

  3. And to think there once were gigantic creatures like this roaming the earth! If our genes could be traced far back enough, wonder what we would have looked like before mammals were invented?
