Lizards at the Oregon Zoo
in Washington Park
Portland, Oregon

Lizards are a widespread group of squamate reptiles, with over 6,000 species, ranging across all continents except Antarctica, as well as most oceanic island chains. The group is paraphyletic as it excludes the snakes and Amphisbaenia which are also squamates. Lizards range in size from chameleons and geckos a few centimeters long to the 3 meter long Komodo dragon. [from wikipedia]

A Plumed basilisk tried to hide deep inside its exhibit. The photographer had to stand on tip toes to obtain this shot.
