Bermuda Rock Lizard

A few leftovers from the early 90s, when I would spend several weeks each summer studying the Bermuda Rock Lizard (Plestiodon longirostris) , Bermuda's only endemic terrestrial vertebrate.  It's a highly endangered little lizard, surviving as only a few small populations within  the Bermudian archipelago.
