I work in Key Largo at a luxury resort called Kona Kai. We are all environmentalists at heart. We have noticed quite a population of curly tailed lizards showing up at Kona Kai. 1 yeer ago we saw one, now we have about 10-15.

I have had these in my yard since I've lived in Hollywood, FL. At least a half a dozen at any given time. Never really thought much of it until today. My 18 month old daughter picked up what I thought was one of my 6 year old son's 'rubber' lizard/reptile toys from his collection in our Florida room. Just as she started to squeeze it multiple times, it jumped from her hand and nearly gave me a heart attack! The thing must have been at least 6 inches long from head to tail. It's the 2nd one this week I had to remove from the house....
