Cottage Club Critters

Below are some shots of critters that I found on an afternoon wandering around The Cottage Club. There are several photos of the endemic Saban anole (Anolis sabanus). Males of this species have a striking pattern of black spots, while females are mostly tan. In the forest, the young actually look a lot like the bearded anole (Anolis pogus) which is on St. Martin. There is also a photo of a green iguana, which I initially thought was the Lesser Antillean iguana (Iguana delicatissima). As it turns out, the green iguanas on Saba are a distinct population with unique coloring, although they haven’t been designated as a separate species or subspecies…yet!
