A Wish For Tree-Caves

In my backyard, there is an olive tree.  Half dead, the live portion is supported by the barkless portion and enjoys luxuriant growth.  In the base there are holes where lizards live.  It looks like such an interesting place to explore if I were tiny.

The rock lizards live here, and breed, and come out to eat bugs and do pushups in silly looking displays of dominance.  If I could be tiny, it would be an amazing place to explore.  I’d need ropes and a helmet for these fascinating caves, though.

Yet, were I tiny, I’d also have to be careful.  Those lizards would be strong, like dragons of yore…

After all, what if I encountered something like this when I was only three inches tall?
