Madre Selva Field Station, Depto. Loreto, Peru. January 10, 2011.
These are sometimes called “Guichenot’s Dwarf Iguana”, which is a terrible name (no offense to Guichenot). Enyalioides is fun to say. The juveniles of this species sport a variety of colors and patterns, but only achieve the greenest of greens as adults. During the day they are active in the trees and other vegetation, but at night I usually can find one or two sleeping on leaves quite close to the ground.
