Slip-slop-slap, Pam. You know the drill. Costa Rica sounds awesome. I'm not doing anything near as amazing as you, but lots of outdoors stuff is planned for my hols :-)

thanks Neil for fine tuning the ID...
I'm well. Kicking myself for forgetting to put sunscreen on my legs when I went snorkeling yesterday... Lobster red today ! I'm in the amazing Osa Peninsular, SW Costa Rica, full-on rainforest... Biodiversity hot-spot. Hope you are having fun on your hols.

Hi Pam. How are you? From the location of this spotting, this could be a Gippsland Water Dragon (Intellagama lesueurii howittii). The Eastern Water Dragon (Intellagama lesueurii lesueurii) has a dark stripe from ear to eye, that the Gippsland sub-species lacks.
