Of lizards in Los Cabos

We have relatively few lizards where I live. The same does not seem to be true here in Cabo San Lucas. We have a trio of geckos that come out around our patio nightly. During the day I have seen a variety of iguanas, salamanders and rock lizards.  One large iguana was perched in a hedge munching on the flowers when I walked by a few days ago.  I was surprised to find it in that spot and have since learned that petals are a regular part of the diet.

Most often, I see them out warming their cold blood on hot rocks in the sun…

Some stay mostly out of sight – this green lizard was shy but easily the most colorful one I’ve seen.  After watching me for a couple of minutes, he did come out for a look around.
