Palm Reader Lloyd States the Obvious

This palm is scalier than my back, and if you ever want to find a life partner, I foresee you spending a fortune on moisturizer. And speaking of fortunes, this one cost you $100.

  1. Cutest!

    OMG, Tiny Leezard!

  3. browngrl says:

    worst day at work ever, thank goodness for cute overload!

  4. leaves of cat grass says:

    i think this officially the leeeetlest thing i’ve ever seen on CO!

  5. 260Oakley says:

    Clutching fingers, (almost) Hidden Dragon

  6. tracylee says:

    soooo teeny!

  7. tracylee says:

    teeny little super guy? oh, yeah.

  8. soooo, since i don’t want to work i looked up what a baby komodo dragon should look like size wise, and i sadly have to report that this ISN’T a baby komodo dragon (that are an average of 8 inches long when born), but it is so cute nonetheless!

  9. I’m guessing that’s either a gecko or a skink.

  10. Caitlin says:

    its probably a Mediterranean gecko

  11. Love this picture! Cuteoverload needs to give some more love to reptiles. Puppies and kittens aren’t the only cute animals out there!

  12. If that’s a baby komodo dragon than that guy is from Land of the Giants!
    (Yes I’m old AND a geek!)

  13. Lerrinus says:

    Awesome as always, Oakely! 😆

    I wonder if he sleeps curled up on a walnut shell?

  14. Definitely looks like a gecko. Adorable no matter what he is though! If only I had a spare $100 and a guarantee that I wouldn’t lose him… o_0

  15. It might cost you $100, but he will save you 15% or more on your car insurance.

  16. He reads with his tiny feets, just like my cat reads with his butt. Go ahead, ask me what I mean. 😛

  17. Be careful not to skwoosh heem!

  18. fish eye no miko says:

    Good lord that’s cute! I agree with Lyzz; more reptiles, please!

    BTW, I think the “komodo dragon” thing was a joke, meant to imply that the hand (and thus the person it belongs to) is huge. (-:

  19. Rachael says:

    Theresa, consider yourself asked. Inquiring minds want to know. 😀

  20. wannadance says:

    speak, th…

  21. flutterbye says:

    Sweet! A babeh lizzzaaaard!

    Pweeeezzze, Theresa, do tell!

  22. flutterbye says:

    @Theresa, better yet, a piktchure is werth a hunnert werds!

  23. JohnnieCanuck says:
  24. @Theresa I know EXACTLY what you mean but I am curious to read YOUR experiences with the “cat reading butt” 🙂

  25. AWWWW look how cute!!!

    And @Theresa – does your cat also attempt to use the Internet with his butt? Especially when you are in the middle of using it?

  26. Awww I was thinkin g tiny baby blue belly but maybe something else.

    @ Theresa.. my cats read with their butt also!

    @ 260Oakley I am as always impressed!

  27. chanpon says:

    Get out!

    (That’s the Elaine Benes voice, not the Amityville Horror demon voice…in case someone was confused)

  28. victoreia says:

    @Alex: you beat me to the Geico reference!

    @Theresa: don’t all cats read that way?

    And, yes, folks, that’s a gecko. (We have tons-TONS, I tell you!-in Hawaii!)

  29. Perfectly bite-sized for me to KRONSCH.

    Nom nom nom nomonomnomojomn.l,jsl;akjfas;l.

  30. Yay for more lizards!

  31. Noelegy says:

    Awww, cute li’l leeezard!

  32. For the unintiated into the ways of the kitty tribe, oftimes, which you are trying to read a newspaper, the cat will come along, and deposit his/her butt firmly upon said paper. This is how the cat reads the paper. They absorb vast volumes of information through their hineys.

  33. AuntieMame says:

    Theresa, that’s called reading by assmosis. 😀

    Theresa, that’s called reading by assmosis.


  35. falnfenix says:

    please excuse me while i expire of gecko-induced squeedeath.

    *POIT* oh crap, my head exploded into candy again…

  36. “assmosis” I love this word and will attempt to slide it into conversations whenever possible – thanks Auntie Mame!!!

  37. “assmosis” ! Hehehe… I like it!

    And, Theresa… um, thanks for the info. I think.

  38. I guess I never had a cat and read the newspaper at the same time.

  39. huh huh…she said hineys!

  40. formercalidesertgal says:

    I found one of these wee little things in my house once. I mistakenly thought it was a weird spider hanging out on a warm surge protector and upon closer inspection, realized it was a tiny tiny gecko!!!! You could almost see right through him 🙂

  41. @AuntieMame – not sure where you live so just wondering perhaps if you have a CO calendar turned to the 2nd June ? 🙂

  42. oh he’s a skink
    when his eyes plink
    it makes me think
    that cute don’t stink

  43. Hon Glad says:

    Llyod – I’ve just taken a walk along your lifeline and let’s put it this way,
    it wasn’t a long walk.

  44. Dear little Lizard.
    You are cute, would you mind if I ever so lightly pat your tiny foots with the tip of my finger?
    Also… you look see through. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Just sayin’
    Besy Wishes,

  45. haha! Hon Glad.

  46. StormCat42 says:

    Sherb, could you hear the thousands of CO calendars being flipped to today’s date? That was the first thing I did after reading your post! LOL

    Oakley, as always, I’m in Awwwwww!!!!

    Loved the Geico reference too!

    Theresa – Yep, my cats all use assmosis! Unfortunately, I have one Kitteh who’s butt can almost take up the whole page, so she must be getting her information in spades, ya know?

  47. georgina0912 says:

    But who ish such a cute lishard…but who is the cutesht little lizhard…aaaaboogaboogaboogaboo….

  48. 260Oakley says:

    Someone needs to make a ‘tockumentary showing the many ways cats manage to get a little behind in their work.

  49. oh noes! LJ banned the cuteoverload feed? What do they have against cuteness??

  50. BStrange says:


    …So tiiiired… but must heed the call of cute…

    This little reptile’s BEF demanded my attendance even with limited webtime. Splayed toes, general tininess, and eyes like two glimmering droplets of fresh grasshopper spit = cuuuuute. Heck, I deny that this is even a lizard! Since it can’t be a cuteness molecule (mini-hamsters have that tied up), clearly it is a lizard spore, virtually weightless and ready to be blown to new horizons, sprouting wherever its clingy toesies should happen to snag.

    Yup. Lizard spore. And I want one. *nod*

  51. Colonel Jenna says:

    Lordy, can you even *feel* something that tiny sitting on your finger? Even if it were a foot long it’d be kinda cute, but as it is this crittur is simply irresistible.

  52. I have to respectfully disagree. I think those hands are quite lovely.

    And I’m totally on board with the lizard spore theory. Like he just dropped off the back of a fern frond, his tail curling like a fiddle head.

  53. Katrina says:

    I have now learned OOHHHHHH so much more than I need to know about Komodo Dragons and Flying snakes and their flying prey. I have also learned to
    1) not go to Indonesia
    or ,
    B) to always carry a large canopy over my head.

    Thanks CO!

  54. Confused says:

    Maybe it’s the hand that is the Komodo Dragon. Maybe we’re all Komodo Dragons. Is that possible??

  55. AuntieMame says:

    LOL, sherb! Good comedic timing, eh?

    I had actually peeked ahead at the calendar a few days ago, but that is an expression I’ve heard other places before, so it wasn’t entirely prompted by the cute puppeh butts. 😀

  56. butiki!

  57. cafegrrl says:


    So friggin’ CUTE!

  58. Dear wee beastie!

  59. Neopatra says:

    In the very first apartment I ever had, I had one of these. It would run across the ceiling of my bedroom. It wasn’t doing any harm, so I left it alone. It gradually ate all of the cockroaches in the apartment, and by the time I moved out two years later, it was fully-grown. I carefully captured him, thanked him for a job well done, and released him to the safety of the local shrubbery.

  60. It looks like a hatchling crested gecko.

  61. Hatchling crested geckos are actually much bigger then that. I know there are some species of gecko that are that small but I cannot remember the scientific names for them :/

    Very cute though. I have 5 crested geckos and they are the cutest things ever. You can barely feel the babies on the tips of your finger they are so small and light.

  62. debbie downer says:

    you know, those ‘scaly’ hands might not just be the result of slacking on moisturizing. i have a skin condition on my hands which makes them appear like this in areas–and trust me, there is no lack of moisturizer going on here. a bit disheartened and offended to read this, but you know, that’s how it goes.

    alternately, this person might just be of advanced age. in any case, snark much?

  63. That is some gorgeous photography skills. Stylistic points for sure.

  64. We have tons of these leetle guys in south Florida, they live around my plants (and often in my house) and eat bugs for us… my kitties often leave me their teensy carcasses as housewarming gifts. More often than that, I am rescuing lizards from said murderous kitties!
