Just leave it there TBH. My mother has one that's been hanging around her place for years. He'll be there for a few months then disappear than come back. Maybe you could befriend him or her.
Nah, I have a cat. Also, had to lay some roach baits down. I doubt they would have interested it, but wasn't sure.....didn't want it to get hurt.

Anyway, things escalated. He moved from behind the fridge to behind the dryer and there's a bait laid down there, so I figured I had to move. My cat cat also turned up at the door wanting to come in, which was a complication. Luckily, he is inquisitive, but not aggressive. I've seen him sniffing at lizards before, but he never tries to hurt even the little ones. Anyway, I let him back in so he wouldn't dissuade the lizard from leaving, told him to keep his distance (which he did) moved the fridge and escorted the lizard out by very gently prodding him with a broom. Just enough for him to feel it and get moving. Luckily the dryer is right next to my door.

Just grab it with your hands you pussy, the bite just feels like a peg pinching your skin lol.

Just do the AC trick, let it go out on it's own and then cover the gap. If you move it yourself and take it somewhere "new" it could die because it's a bit of a dumb c***.
Lol, those buggers don't let go.

Not really practical with a cat around.....but surely he'll be fine in the garden.

My dogs was like that with the lizard when we visit my mother. He wouldn't have a clue what to do if he actually caught the lizard.

Yeah, I doubt my little dude would try to hurt it, but didn't want to take any chances. better to get it out just in case.

A big lizard just came in through the gap between the bottom of my screen door and the single step outside. Actually, I think it is a blue tongued, so not too large as far as they go, but big enough. Longer than a large rat. I've been trying to catch it with a towel to put it out in the garden, but it keeps scurrying behind furniture and appliances. It's proving difficult to catch. Any advice on hos to coax it out of the house? I need to get back to work. Hoping if I leave the front door open so it can climb out under the screen door, it might get cold and decide to leave of its own accord? Not sure what else to do. The Crocodile Hunter is dead. :anguished:

Glad you got it out. They're territorial so it won't be far away. If it returns and you want to catch it, offer it something at the bitey end like a folded towel, when it bites put a hand on its back behind the front legs and pick it up from there. They're not flexible enough to bite if you hold them behind the front legs. Throwing a towel over them just means it's hard to see the bitey end.

You could always try the bucket method too. Get a bucket or plastic box large enough to cover it. Then push some cardboard under the bucket slowly until it is like a lid. Flip over the container again gently and carry it out in that.
