Rare Chromolithograph Plate from Lydekker Natural History, 1904

This is a true story that happened in Japan.
In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan tore open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside was hammered into one of its feet. He saw this, felt pity, and at the same time he was curious. When he checked the nail, he remembered it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was first built.

What had happened?

The lizard had survived in such a position for 10 years! In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind boggling. Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years without moving a single step--since its foot was nailed!
So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it had been doing,
and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it
came, appeared another lizard, with food in its mouth.

Ahh! He was stunned and at the same time, touched deeply. Another lizard had been feeding the stuck one for the past 10 years...
Tears welled up in the man's eyes.
He set the nailed lizard free
Such love, such a beautiful love! Such love happened with this tiny creature...
What can love do?

It can do wonders!
Love can do miracles!

Just think about it; one lizard had been feeding the other one untiringly for 10 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
If a small creature like a lizard can love like this...
just imagine how we can love if we try.
