A “Happy You’re Home” Lick

Amy came to visit her Grandma and Grandpa this week.  Sunshine could not come conveniently on the plane, but Amy’s Dad drove him in his cage from Arizona to Utah several days later.  When Sunshine saw Amy, he waddled quickly over to Amy and–I kid you not–gave her hand a little lick, a lick normally reserved for catching cockroaches.  Though I cannot see emotion in this lizard’s features, without a doubt I saw him express enthusiastic and real affection for his human.
