Stacey Vavrinek noticed one day something inside a plastic dinosaur while she was sitting with her neighbor at her picnic table. She was confused at first but suddenly she saw that it was a lizard hiding in the ‘dinosaur’.
“My neighbor Michael is an avid gardener and has the most amazing plants. As a joke, I hide dinosaurs in his garden in the middle of the night,” Vavrinek said. “Then he puts them in my garden, and it just goes back and forth as a joke between neighbors. Now everybody’s got millions of dinosaurs in their gardens.”
Actually it looked like lizard was dressed up for Halloween. But he was having his best life staying inside. It looked like he found a happy home.
And now this lizard is a local celebrity in Vavrinek’s Florida neighborhood, too.
“I checked on him today when I got home from work, and he is in the dinosaur,” Vavrinek said. “He’s not afraid of us, but so many people have been coming to look at him that he’s a little more shy and gets a little bit deeper down into the dinosaur.”
Lizard is happy to find a new place to stay and is feeling very comfortable.
