I've never understood why people will swerve to avoid hitting an animal. i get that the OP was only on a bicycle but people in cars die every year from swerving away from a squirrel and hitting a tree. How dumb are people.! I mean I don't WANT to hit a squirrel or a rabbit or even a dog but if it's dumb enough to cross the road then why should I give up my life or potentially put my life in danger to save an animal.
1- it's natural instinct to avoid hitting something or running into something that appears randomly 2. "I'd dumb enough" I'm sorry that we didn't teach animals to look both ways before crossing a road...it's natural for them to roam around anywhere unlike the complete opposite of driving a car....but some ppl have extreme reactions which is unacceptable
179, the lizards in Florida were here before all of us, but the ones that you say are "evil and everywhere" I suspect are the possibly non native(there is debate) Green Iguana (6 ft. long), Argentine Tegu (5 ft.), Nile Monitor Lizard(6-8 ft.) and various of the family Agamidae. They are invasive, but they didn't choose to be in Florida, we put them there. What we may call vicious is them doing all they know how to do: survive.
15 - Actually, you're wrong. Lizards and geckos are EXTREMELY similar. Their Kingdoms, Phlya, Classes, and Orders are all the same (Animalia, Chordata, Reptilia, and Squamata respectively). They are only different in Family, Genus, and Species. In fact, most lizard breeds have differing Families, Genuses, and Specieses from other lizards; the same goes for geckos.
even thought they are the same in the domain, kingdom, phylum, class,and order the family genus and species are the deciding factors, they are actually significantly different, geckos brains are much more different, they are actually ganglia, not brain and even though I have, lizards and geckos cannot be compared, lizards are classified in the order while geckos are classified in the genus
