How Much is that Lizard in the Window?

I was sitting at the desk in my office when I heard scratching on my window, so I opened my blinds and I saw this guy trying to get in.

For those of you who have never seen one before, this is a Desert Spiny Lizard, and apparently he was confused by the window glass. Based on the fact that the slats in my window blinds are 1.75 inches apart, that places the length of this big guy at somewhere between 10 and 11 inches in size.

I am reminded daily that living in the desert is kind of an adventure... Smile
