However, children can turn these kind of concepts around. In this case, a child found a lizard in a bundle of chilled salad greens and instead of getting shocked, the girl (who studies in kindergarten) along with her mom managed to revive the lizard and took it to school where it actually has got many fans now (and also is of a breed that is somewhat unique) (link to article):
The three-inch (7.5cm) critter went unnoticed for a few days in the refrigerator in Princeton, New Jersey, before Sally Mabon and her daughter Faye found its limp body while unwrapping a bunch of tatsoi, an Asian leaf, science teacher Mark Eastburn of Riverside Elementary School in Princeton said on Tuesday. Warmth restored its energy and soon the anole lizard was on its way to Riverside Elementary School, where it caught "oohs" and "aahs" like flies, and quickly became the class pet. Less Godzilla and more Geico Gecko, the juvenile lizard has been named "Green Fruit Loop" by the children.
