Culebra Island Giant Anole (Anolis roosevelti)

Posted By John Constantinide, Thursday, May 22, 2008
I personally think tropical reptiles are neat, so I thought that an endangered lizard would be appropriate to name as my endangered species. As I saw this blog prompt me to name a species, I found that a lizard in nearby Puerto Rico is endangered due to human activities: the Culebra Island Giant Anole. After its discovery in 1931, there were only a few sightings of this species. It's native habitat is on the island of Culebra. It prefers to live around gumbo limbo and ficus trees, since it feeds off the fruit of those trees. The only confirmed species are those found in museums.
