Description

On a branch in a thin strip of brush that was about 4.5 meters thick and 400 meters long towards the coast. The male basilisk was unmoving and seemed to be sunning until we startled it by getting too close. He moved to a lower branch (upon which it is pictured) and would bob his head up and down about once per second when he saw we were not moving away. After about a minute of this, he stopped bobbing its head and stood unmoving on its branch for 10 minutes, head turned sideways but making sure we were in sight, until I shifted. The movement startled him, and he immediately dropped to the floor and scurried under litter and roots.

I assume this is some species of Basilisk? The shot was taken at Chan Chich Lodge, Belize, in December 1999. This is a scan from a print.
