    Sand Dune Lizard Could Cost Jobs in Texas If Added to Endangered Species List

    The sand dune lizard is a small reptile that has become the scourge of the Texas Oil industry, not because it is dangerous but because the threatened species could put land ripe for oil exploration off limits. "As far as I am concerned, it is Godzilla," Texas land commissioner Jerry Paterson told ABC News. "[It's] the biggest threat facing the oil business in memory," said Ben Shepperd, president of the Permian Basin Petroleum Association. They believe the small tan-colored, insectivorous lizard could cost the oil industry and surrounding communities thousands of jobs.

    Sounds like he should just get his buddies together, kill the last of 'em off, and then say "What? I don't see any sand lizards."

      First thing I thought about was- "It's all about the spice!" But that was worms, not lizards.

        I thought Texas oil workers were an endangered species.

          I'm pretty sure oil workers in general are an endangered species these days....

          They've managed to kill off the rare, but powerful Gulf Worker and the Deep Water Worker. They even nipped that ANWAR Worker breed in the bud before it could even get moving. Its ok though. The Chinese Oil Worker sub-species is currently flourishing. We're even giving them aid to help their populations increase....

            ...and the public drone workerbee colonies are flourishing as well too. They take honey and spread it around in the form of waste by-products.
