Yes, your garage door protects your valuables.

Yes, it’s important to keep burglars out of your home.

Yes, an insulated garage door can make a big difference when it comes to how hot your garage gets (and therefore how hard your air conditioner needs to work in the summer time).

Yes, keeping the garage door seals in good shape helps keep out excess moisture, bugs, mice and other small critters.

You need one more reason you want to make sure your garage door is in good working order?  You don’t want this guy to be able to scratch his way in! (but you DO want to be sure your door opens quickly to let YOU in, if you happen to come across him in front of YOUR house!)

Three-foot lizard found roaming streets of Tucson

3 ft lizard in Tucson garageTUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – Updated: Oct 07, 2015 5:29 AM

A three-foot lizard was captured in Tucson on Tuesday, after apparently escaping from his owner.

Lane Smith of Tucson Reptile Rescue said his organization is taking care of the carnivorous lizard. He said it is a Nile monitor lizard, which is not native to Arizona.

Smith said that somebody called the Tucson Fire Department at about 2 p.m. to report a three-foot lizard scratching on their door. The lizard was taken to a fire station, and then turned over to Tucson Reptile Rescue.

If you know who owns the lizard, call Tucson Reptile Rescue at (520) 991-9553.

And just in time for Halloween, too!  🙂
