    That smile is because he’s wondering if you taste good.

    more like he’s eyeing my salad.

    these guys are strict vegetarians, IIRC.

    They dive in shallow water to feed on algae.

    Danio – Did all hell just break loose on your end of the state with wind & rain? It’s suddenly ugly here.

    That huge lizard has a look on it’s face like my Bulldog. Pleased about something. ;o)

    Aaaawwww! Cute!

    Isn’t that the type they used as cut rate dinosaurs in old adventure flicks? They’d past a big fin on their back and film them in Up-Close-O-Vision while offscreen a stagehand pokes it with a plastic stegosaurus.

    Yes! Here ya go!

    Actually, that was a pretty effective scene when I was a kid.

    Poor quality. Some tool videoed their TV screen. Der.

    Isn’t that a bit unfair? The iguana is much better looking.

    Iguana is also one helluva lot younger and smarter.
    That one peeping at you in the bottom right corner, on the other hand . . .

    Thank you for posting this, PZ. It made my day, though I am probably anthropomorphizing on some level. :)

    Thank your for posting that picture. Amblyrhynchus cristatus was the first scientific name that I learned at the tender age of 6 or 7 years old.
