Story: Lizards

Lizard house (3rd of 3)

Lizard house

To attract lizards to your garden, you can make a shelter for them. This one is made out of a lightweight, corrugated roofing product made of organic fibre. Several 30-by-40-centimetre pieces have been stacked, with a few stones between the layers, in a dry, sunny area close to plants and rocks. The house should attract lizards if they live locally. It should not be moved, as this will disturb the lizards and they will leave.
