Modified Dog Bowl


Yesterday it rained all day, the garden seemed to lap up the moisture and everything is looking very green and lush.


The lizards in our garden can’t resist drinking from the dogs’ water bowl (we don’t have a dog but like to leave water out for our regular canine visitors).  Unfortunately they sometimes dive straight in and then find they can’t get themselves out so Paul has installed a lizard safety net to help them clamber out again. It’s not easy giving mouth to mouth to a drowned lizard.

  1. With proper commercial backing, Paul could make lots of money from this ingenious invention. All over the world lizards must be falling in dog bowls. The invention will need a catchy name - how about "LizNet"? And a catchy advertising slogan - "Don't ForGet your LizNet!"

  2. We get gheckos and lizards in our pool, and I always worry that they won't be able to get out, because of the overhanging surround, and the cover we put over at night. I normally keep a shallow polystyrene tray floating on the water, if I see any creature in trouble, I try to scoop it out and put it on dry land !

  5. We have the same problem; I'm always fishing them out from the pool or other places. I usually just put a stick in bowls so they can climb out, but they're not the brightest of creatures, as I expect you'll discover.

    1. We tried the stick in the bowl but the dog ran off with it!

    3. It could do if you're not careful.
