Anolis limifrons — Border Anole
Some other names for this species:
This thin anole was extremely well camouflaged against the small tree trunk on which it was perched. Many anoles perch head-down like this near the bottoms of tree trunks, looking for tasty morsels passing by on the ground.
This delicate anole was the first herp that posed for me on this Costa Rica trip, and also turned out to be the only anole species I saw on the Caribbean side of the country.
