Secret resident

For the past few weeks, I've noticed a green anole, living within a potted succulent (Euphorbia trigona) we keep on our front porch. I love these guys. I had a baby one as a child that I kept in a jar. Until I accidently killed it. I cried about that for years. However, this fellow is well protected, as long as he stays within the succulent's bristly arms. Because, alas, we do have three cats who would just love to do him in, if they could. I've sworn NO MORE CATS after these three pass to a better, higher place. Called cat heaven.

Anyway, today I looked and look, then found him hiding in back of the succulent. So I got some photos. Aren't they intelligent-looking creatures?
