Leposoma southi — Northern Spectacled Lizard
Trail from Esquinas Rainforest Lodge, Golfito region, Puntarenas province, Costa Rica—September 26, 2001
This tiny little skink-like lizard was found skittering about in the leaf litter. We collected it for later photography, but somebody who shall remain nameless to prevent public everlasting shame folded rather than tied the plastic bag, and the little lizard snuck away. (No, it wasn't me.) Sigh -- it was the first lizard I had seen in this family. I'm sure the responsible party still loses sleep about this.
