In the Caribe where I was last week, there two kinds of Basilisks, both called “Miniature Dinosaurs” and “Jesus Christ Lizards” (because they both “walk on water”). The most popular is the Plumed or Emerald Basilisk (Wikipedia link) and the Common, Striped or Brown Basilisk (Wikipedia link). Here are a couple of photos of each from last week, then be sure to see my galleries for each below that! And I prefer the names of Emerald and Brown! 🙂

Baby dinosaur! Infant dragon!
Please don’t feed them anything that will make them grow.
Ha, ha, ha! 🙂 Don’t worry! I think God pre-determined their size and what they would eat! 🙂 And believe it or not, they are a part of the ecological balance of nature and needed in this world!
The brown is so ugly in comparison to the emerald! It makes me feel sorry for the brown.
