Lizards and Morocco

That is a very lucky lizard.
We are in the middle of a SPANA supporters' tour. Today we're travelling down to Marrakech, but on the east side of the Atlas Mountains.
We passed this old chap at the side of the road, waving something at us.
It turned out to be a fat-tailed lizard - a really ace aphrodisiac amongst the local groovers and shakers. He thought we would pay to photograph it. Oh,foolish man.
These are SPANA people. Straight away they were bargaining to buy it.
I know, I know. He'll only get another one - but for that one lizard, it was his lucky day.
Wild cheers, as we let him go a few miles further down the road.
The Moroccan driver just shook his head in disbelief.
"Ils ont fou pour les animaux, les Anglais".
