So... last of the Corkscrew Critters. :)
|Pig Frog (054 - 2012)|
|American Green Tree Frog (055 - 2012)|
By contrast, this guy is about one inch long. He's a little tiny American Green Treefrog. The white line running under his eye from his jaw is the big clue. So cute!
|Green (Carolina) Anole - (056 - 2012)|
This is a Green Anole. It's also called a Carolina Anole.
|Brown Anole (057 - 2012)|
This, on the other hand, is a Brown Anole. The Greens are native to Florida, but the Browns are an invasive species brought up from Cuba and the Bahamas. And they are *everywhere* in the state. Like, we're used to getting the occasional fly in the house up here in Chicago... my parents are used to getting the occasional lizard in the house. I kept stopping as we walked and going "Oh look! A Lizard!" And my dad would say something like, "Around here that's like going, 'Oh look an ant.' Nobody stops to point them out here." Anyway, this guy was basking in stripe of sunlight he found and if you look carefully, I think he was smiling at me.
|Alligator Flag (058 - 2012)|
So those are the notables from Corkscrew Swamp in the Everglades in Florida!
