Everytime I look at a picture of a biggish lizard (like this Gila Monster), I realize why the word "reptilian" is a little creepy, and why being thrown in a pit of lizards, snakes and toads is among the worst of punishments in many fairy tales.
This postcard is from the Mystery Sender, from a "Wild Life Exhibit" in Blalock, Oregon, a town now considered a ghost town, as it is completely covered by water, with the building of the John Day Dam on the Columbia River, completed in the early 1970s. I guess that's one way to figure out the age of a postcard!
