Here's another little mini-dragon...a green one to complement the red guy. This one is species Draco Maximus or "Giant Flying Dragon". Something tells me there was once a much larger, and truly "giant" flying lizard that inspired ancient stories of dragons.
Lizards are different, exotic pets. Though they may not be at your side thick and thin, they are still great companions. They are ideal classroom pets, as kids get to help feed the creatures and watch them without being to distracted.
This is one of the world's only pure blue lizards, and unfortunately it's on the verge of extinction. The Blue Anole (Anolis gorgonae) looks like a little slice of sky as it slinks through the dense forests of Gorgona. The lizard is so reclusive and rare that scientists have a hard time even estimating what the total population of the species may be.
I love these guys. When I was a kid I lived in Spain. We could go get one out of the bushes any day. They were our pets. They DO NOT turn this color, however. That is somebody's photoshop idea. They are between bright green and brown. That's it.
Lizards One of these once escaped at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and was at large in the museum for several hours. The museum was preparing to host a wedding reception the same day, and it was feared that Thor (the lizard) would crash the party. He was found behind a display just in the nick of time.
