Description

There are a variety of lesser anole in my immediate area, but the Knight Anole is observed less often and usually not fully adult size. They are most often seen descending large trees presumably foraging the bird and squirrel nests high in the canopy.

Brown Basilisk Basiliscus vittatus

the past

Description

These photos were literally shot outside my front and back doors in Broward County Florida. The Brown Basilisk has become the dominate large lizard in my immediate area 12 miles inland from the Atlantic since the iguanas largely died off after the 2009, 2010 and 2011 freezes. Iguanas survived in areas closer to the ocean and in areas of urban micro-climates. The B. vitiates appear to be slightly more cold hardy.
