Leiocephalus carinatus, the Northern curly-tailed lizard;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (13 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023
I wrapped up my South Miami / Coral Gables afternoon jaunt with another Northern curly-tailed lizard encounter. I came across a group of these invasive lizards populating the limestone rocks along the edge of a local parking lot — one curly-tailed lizard per each three rocks. They were fairly well spaced out!
