Just for Fun: Lizards of South Florida

Hopefully, I will resume our excursion into the superiority of classical education later this week. It’s summertime, and the living is easy they say, but it’s taking me longer than I’d hope to gather my thoughts and sources for this topic. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, it is summer, so let’s have some fun.

Yesterday, we had what I described as a Jurassic Park experience. While exploring a park, on the cement walkway, an alarming number of these came scurrying out of the woods on one side, heading to the woods on the other:

This sent us on an exploratory venture all over the island to take photos of lizards. These are the best ones. Enjoy!

Nope. The pics aren’t edited except for cropping.

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

    If all goes south, just make sure you’re eating herbivores like iguana, or worst case, carnivores that eat mostly herbivores. Python are not in these categories, and carry a boatload of mercury.

    To the subject, beautiful pictures, and thank you. I had fun looking up what these little critters are.

    You’re very welcome, Bike. You know we’re all about the learning over here!

    These critters, as noted in Okrahead’s link, aren’t native to south Florida, but they have thrived and there are few places along the southeast coast where you won’t run into them.
