Leiocephalus carinatus, 07 August 2017

Leiocephalus carinatus, the Northern curlytail lizard;
Monroe county, Florida (07 August 2017).

Native to Cuba, the Bahamas, and the Cayman Islands, the Northern curltytail lizard is steadily making its way north throughout the Florida peninsula. I’ve seen them down in the Florida Keys and as far north as Stuart, Florida. They’ve also been well documented in the Cocoa Beach area and a few other spots ranging as far north as Jacksonville Beach. This seems to be a resilient species well adapted to Florida’s coastal mainlands.
