Striped Basilisks

These are 3 different Striped Basilisks, Basiliscus vittatus with the Spanish names of Basiliscus Rayado (o B. Comun). Here’s one adult and two immature with two different colors of longitudinal stripes.

Immature or Juvenile Striped Basilisk
Immature or Juvenile Striped Basilisk with lines white instead of more common pale yellow.

One of my books says these are only on the Atlantic side of Costa Rica, but I prove that incorrect in my Striped Basilisk Gallery with photos from both coasts. And note that none of the above photos show all of their tail which can be double the length of their body! 🙂

¡Pura Vida!
