A cool pic from my recent trip to Beautiful Bamboo (more on my blog). That's a Bambusa Lako culm he's on. Are these guys pests or just visitors?

They most certainly eat pest for desert.

You can tell this lizard had recently shed its tail out of danger.

Typical lizard escape move - they shed their tail when grabbed or threatened, and that detached tail will wiggle while the lizard escapes. Smart move, but it'll take them a while to regrow that fat tail.

They also keep it while there's plenty of food and eat it when there's not enough food around.

Welcome to the forum Roberto. I think others would particularly like to hear of your experience with bamboos out there in Idaho.
