Trail from Esquinas Rainforest Lodge, Golfito region, Puntarenas province, Costa RicaSeptember 26, 2001
Delicate Ameiva (Holcosus leptophrys)
The common name for this beefy ameiva seems ill-chosen. We came across several adults basking in sun spots on the forest trail, but I never managed to get a photo before they ran off. A few feeble attempts to capture them failed miserably. The one pictured here is a juvenile.

Here is a complete list of the species we found on this GreenTracks trip.
