Congratulations Adam, your lava lizard is our Spotting of the Day!

"From Isla Santa Cruz in the Galápagos, this Lava Lizard (Microlophus sp.) is our Spotting of the Day! There are 7 different species of the lizards known as lava lizards on the Galápagos Islands. The distribution of these lizards across the islands and their variations in shape and color reflect the phenomenon known as adaptive radiation typical of wildlife on the archipelago. Lava lizards can change their color individually to some extent, and members of the same species occurring in different habitats also show differences in color. Lizards living mainly on dark lava are darker than ones living in lighter environments".
