Racism

Meet my friend Lily. She has a dark complexion while other lizards are brownish in colour. They play together but Lily is alone. She comes to greet me every morning, slowly coming out from her hide out - from under the sofa. I love her. Strange that even among mammals there is racism. Atleast that is what I have noticed. Have you experienced this?

Chicken can be the same way. If one is lighter in color it seems that it gets pecked all the time by the other ones.

I feel sorry for Lily She is all alone but comes out when I get up in the morning. I cannot play with her but my heart goes out for her. So racism exists everywhere (lol)

Not sure if it is reverse racism, but Smooch the Cat, my ginger boy will tolerate other cats, but not ginger males such as himself.

He is scared you may replace him or misunderstand that cat to be Smooch and feed him.

So observant of you to have noticed that. I don't see any lizards in my house and I haven't observed things like that at all.

I am not sure it is racism with lizard. It could be constipation and lizardly gases. LOL.

I think it's not racism, it's more like a property issue. Some animals become aggressive when someone invaded their place. I forgot what it's called.

I felt that too ...being territorial. The one she is pitying may actually be more ferocious and possessive of her territory. Wait a minute, how does she know that is a she. Blink.

Not with horses. But they do have "cliques."

@vandana7 Cliques are groups as you find among people.

No...I did not notice that. Though lizards are to the best of my knowledge and belief, oviparous not mammals.

Are you sure Lily is not going to become a giant lizard, and eventually gobbles all the other brown ordinary ones?

She has been that size since a long time. You should see her coming out the moment I sit on my computer.
