Many of these breed and feed at this park, too.
This is a major site for this species, which, today, was in full bloom with youngsters and parents.
Either this critter has too many legs, or this is hot and heavy bug sex!
Established population in Dania Beach, Florida
Adult female and one of four young
After a week of rain, a variety of the area's lizards emerged in the morning to sun and hunt for food. Two non-native hunters contend for the same territory.

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.
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.
All photos of both adult and juvenile Curly-tailed lizard (Leiocephalus carinatus) were in thePlantation FL Whole Food market parking and sidewalk landscape areas.
Red phase N. floridana on the crawl along a canal in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Out playing around with the iPhone app and realized I don't have a grey squirrel on my inat life list.
Cruising across the sidewalk in the morning. I'm seeing conflicting descriptions and can't tell if this is B. kewense (an earthworm eating planarian) or B. vagum (a molusk eating planarian). Any help with the ID is appreciated.
A pool rescue.
See several of these literally every night when I walk the dog this time of year.
Sorry for the awful photo
