New wildlife in my garden

I saw a lizard yesterday in my garden. I was moving my firewood pile and found under a log. I had thought that they were all eliminated from the neighborhood by cats, dogs, kids, lawn and pesticides, but apparently this is an example of if you build it they will come.

He was missing his tail, though I didn't see it wiggling about anywhere. Had I been able to catch him I would have moved him to the front yard where things are a bit calmer.

Maybe this makes a case for leaving the occasional pile of logs / debris laying about. Yep - that pile of concrete rubble - that's lizard habitat!
