Spring Break 2023: Basiliscus vittatus

Basiliscus vittatus, the Brown basilisk;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (13 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

Sliding back eastward a bit to the Coral Gables area, I quickly found a lovely, young Brown basilisk slinking about the edge of a mangrove. This non-native species is ridiculously fast. Just look at those back legs!
