Northern Curly-tailed Lizard (Leiocephalus carinatus)
This species is native to the Bahamas, but has become established in parts of Palm Beach County and Miami-Dade County in southeastern Florida. This little family of two adults and two juveniles resided just next to a dumpster in a suburban campground. I think some of the other campers must have wondered about my mental state when they saw me slowly creep nearer and nearer to the dumpster, gripping my tripod.
