The inside of a chameleon

I was going to regale you all with a late My Town Monday post. However, it's already Tuesday @ 1:30 pm my time, and since I'm on the west coast and behind many of you, I figured I'd save the post until next Monday.

INSTEAD....I will treat you to a not-oft seen sight...

THE INSIDE OF A CHAMELEON!!!

Better yet, THE INSIDE OF A PREGNANT CHAMELEON!!

Here is our very own Fat Letta, in all her skeletal glory. Not sure why the colors on the arrows didn't come through, but....The darker arrows point to EGGS, EGGS and more EGGS! The very light arrow (you must squint to see it) points to a tummy full of digesting crickets.

I actually have a much more recent x-ray of our dear Fat Letta Summy (named by Child #4), but I couldn't get it to upload. Yes, it's been one of those frustrating days when a task that should take 5 MINUTES ends up taking 5 HOURS. Especially those tasks related to the dreaded taxes. Yuck.


Wishing you a happy tax season where you get a little money back (not too much, though, as that means the gov't was hanging onto your money without paying you interest)!

And here's to a healthy pregnancy with fertilized eggs for Fat Letta!

Back to those tasks...

Oh my goodness, look at that! You're right ... I have not seen that sight before. Love it.
I've been having one of those days with my computer as well ... something that's supposed to be quick takes FOREVER!

That's awesome!

Barrie said...

Alyssa: thank you for the clarification!!! And I'm so happy your son is enjoying Spooky!

Kelly: May our respective days go smoothly for, like the next YEAR!

Sarakastic: I knew you'd appreciate it!

Great picture!! That is really truly cool.

Barrie said...

Teresa: I only wish I'd been able to upload the x-ray from this week. It was much larger and clearer. Surely I'll figure it out one of these days. :)

Which is why our financial advisor tells us the BEST thing is to have NO refund! Ha!
That's some image--wow! She is LOADED with eggs!

I’m relieved this was and x-ray and not a dissection. So which is worse: being that pregnant for very little time as a chameleon or being pregnant for nearly 2 years if you’re an elephant? It must be hard to x-ray and elephant too.

Good luck finishing your taxes. Ours are finally done. Ah, the joys of being self employed.

Now there's something I've never seen before.
