Cope’s Lizards

Big-headed Anole, Giant Green Anole, Brown Basilisk: Donde Cope, Guapiles, Costa Rica — in addition to lots of birds (and sometimes sloths), Cope always has a number of lizard species in his little sanctuary. This year they were particularly active…on the hunt…and we saw two with prey. I am not a lizard expert, by a long shot, but my best guess on the ids here is, as above, Big-headed Anole, Big-headed with prey, Giant Green Anole, Giant Green with prey, and Brown Basilisk.
