While looking for other types of animals i came across this funny looking lizard who proceeded to do an "accordion throat".
We found this thin, brown snake in the trees/bushes along the bike path and canal at Shark Valley in Everglades National Park. It has a white/yellow stripe running down its sides. I don't have a still photo but here is a 1-minute video we took of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuW9h4CaWSs
Cat brought the lizard into our house about noon. We rescued it, took the photo and released it in a warm spot on our wood pile.
We are near the southern boundary of the expanding territory of the invasive Italian Wall Lizard and are keeping a tally. Of our 12 similar rescues since 10/1/13, 4 have been non-native.
This little guy was captured by one of my classmates. It was quite healthy and full of vigor (it definitely did not like its picture taken as well)!
Rodent or marsupial? Resident or ring-in? Can anyone identify this little beastie for me? About 2m up off the beach in the scrub
