Help Identify a Large Costa Rican Anole


I was just curious if any one could help me identify an anole I found in central Costa rica, near San Ramon in the Alberto Manuel Brenese Biological Reserve. It appears to be a male, and I’m assuming in the Dactyloa genus. My guess would be the Dactyloa casildae, but I am family uncertain. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me out! Cheers and good health!

  1. Hi Steve,
    This is a juvenile Dactyloa insignis. Check for enlarged postcloacal scales if want to know the sex – dewlap is large in both sexes! Best wishes
