Curious Lizard   Leave a comment

I loved how this lizard was perched upside down, looking around for danger (or is it food?). Captured in Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park.

Jurassic Park? No, Costa Rica!   1 comment

Saw quite a few lizards and iguanas in Antonio Manuel National Park yesterday morning. ┬áThis one is a Ctenosaur – it was about 2 feet long and resting on a tree overlooking the beach:

And this one is a Plumed Basilisk, also known as the Jesus Christ Lizard, for his ability to run across water for up to 20 meters:

And these little ones (20 cm)  ran so fast and their heads darted in all directions so frequently that they reminded me of the velociraptors in Jurassic Park:
