NORTHERN CAIMAN LIZARD Dracaena guianensis Basking on a Limb overhanging Water near the Río Napo in Amazonian Ecuador. Photo by Peter Wendelken

This wild NORTHERN CAIMAN LIZARD Dracaena guianensis (Family Teiidae) was photographed from a canoe passing beneath the limb on which the lizard had laid itself out on October 19, 2002. This Northern Caiman Lizard photo was taken in eastern Ecuador, in the Amazon region along the Río Napo a few hours downstream from Coca. Photo by Peter Wendelken.


For OPTIMAL VIEWING almost as if you were in the canoe, VIEW AT THE ENORMOUS SIZE (1176 x 844) with this direct Flickr link:
