Yeah, the Lizards REALLY find humans problematic. I can't blame them for being so horrified when they start to get a feel for some of our collective behavior.
Ditto on Anielewicz.

I thought it was funny when, among other undesirable side effects, the lizards' reaction to ginger caused their breeding behaviors to more closely mimic humans' constant willingness - something that, IIRC, wasn't realized until 20 years later when the females arrived (the effect was on the females).

When we read the first 4 books, I sent copies of them to my brother for Christmas, along with a box of ginger snaps .
