Lizard rescue at Kabah
Stopping to tour random Mayan ruins has become a fun way to spend a casual riding day. Because the regions of Mexico are so geographically different, the ruins are quite varied in size, shape, and preservation. They also house a variety of critters! In Palenque, the monkeys rule the jungle. At the Mayan ruins of Kabah, lizards stand guard on every wall. I find one lizard all caught up in a net and learn very quickly that lizards are not the sentient mammal types to know a rescue when they see one. No, those hisses are definitely filled with anger. A few very careful snips of the scissors give this lizard another lease on life.
