About Lizard-ville & Lily Capehart

"The Lizard Whisperer"

Since she could walk, Lily was fascinated with the wild lizards found in South Florida and would always be found holding one in her hand. At the age of 10, Lily, an avid watcher of Animal Planet, saw a woman make an alligator "relax" by having it's belly rubbed and decided to try it on the lizards "as they are related" ... and it worked!

Lily happened to have doll clothes that fit perfectly and then began creating whimsical scenes which were then photographed by her father Lucien Capehart, a professional photographer. The wonderful world of "Lizard-Ville" was born. Lily, with help from her mom, has turned "Lizard-ville"" into a line of greeting cards, t-shirts, eco tote bags and calendars. A children’s book is in the works.

As Lily is quick to note,

All these lizards were handled with love and respect and in no way were they harmed in any way, shape or form ...
Lily - 2005.
