Anolis lizards are the most common…they are very dominant in the tropics
Look at that smug mug
Another juvenile Anolis…I got so excited thinking these guys were geckos (only a couple of centimeters long!) that I caught one and brought it back to the station only to learn it was just another Anolis…le sigh.
This is also how I sleep
Adult Anolis…yes those teeth are capable of drawing blood (don’t ask me how I know)
Baby Anolis with prey
This lizard is a master of chillaxin (we call this a Basilisk or Jesus Christ lizard because it can run across water)
Chillaxin level: one toe
…with a mosquito. So often in the tropics, I will be photographing one thing and later, looking at my photos, will see something I completely missed at the time. In this case, a mosquito feeding on the iguana.
