Mummified Brown Anoles

Where we live is an abundance of brown anoles (lizards) as well as green anoles and geckos.  In fact we have geckos living in the garage.

The anoles manage to find their way into the house or squeeze between screen and glass pane of our windows.  Anytime we see them either in the house, or trapped, we'll try to save them.  The two here in my journal are ones we didn't see in time to keep alive.

Never thought of drawing these mummified. We get this too now and then.
I tried catching one once and he detached his tail. Now THAT is creepy as the tail keeps wiggling for a long time. EWWWW.

I'm really curious as to their skeletal structure. Wonder how long that might take to reach that point?
