There appear to be about 5 different kinds of lizards here. Some grow very long and look reddish in colour. The dogs bit the tail off one that dared to enter the house. I put it out but it was just stunned.
It would probably recover Cherry, lots of lizards shed their tails when they're caught & can regrow another (slightly stumpier!) one. I would be happy to see (small) lizards in the garden but not so keen on them trying to move into the house!
