17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Grass Anole Display

One of the most common species of the caribbean dry forests of Colombia, the Grass Anole (Anolis auratus). The lizards from the Anole group display their dewlap to send comunicación signals to other lizards of the same species. This little guy was probably telling me to back off and respect his territory.
