These guys are very elusive, so I grabbed the Olympus C2100uz with its long zoom to capture it.

Non poisonous, but they can bite - they're so elusive that I don't think you'd ever be able to catch them in the wild. I understand they are sold in some pet stores, however.

Beautiful fellow. We don't have any lizards in this area. Just newts and salamanders that some think are reptiles.

You sure got him! He sure is true to his name. I had never seen a blue lizard:-)

except for the little crook at the end of his tail, he would make a beautiful letter opener.
