Take That Geico: Anole Eats a Gecko

Scott Trageser posted this photo on Herpnation of Anolis leachii eating a gecko in Codrington, Barbuda. Here’s a few more details he sent while travelling in Madagascar: “The story was, I was photographing the gecko for a distribution note and the A. leachii came down and grabbed before I could even pull the shot off! The leachi would stay high in the trees so despite being large, we seldom saw them.”

Note: it is proper to spell leachii with two “ii”‘s
