photographing and learning about wildlife
I'm not a scientist, but always had a passion for the natural world. Looking forward to sharing this hobby with like-minded individuals.

I'm not 100% sure with that particular one, but I think it's a Cuban Tree Frog. (Osteopilus septentrional) read more here: https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/publication/uw...
Beautiful dragonfly! I think the ID you chose is of a North American species. See the suggestion I gave above; I found it here which seems to be a good ID start for your geographical area. Cheers.
Perhaps Ariamnes pavesii for the scientific name??? Based on geo. location. But def. an Ariamnes sp. Very interesting, had never seen them before.
Here's a list of many species:
I think John is correct. the Cubans commonly call them Bibijaguas.
Like Mauna said dozens and dozens, many look like the A. sagrei, (like this one) but aren't. Maybe you can find something in this list of 74 species, I think.
Translation: I don't think it's an A. sagrei. There are something like 74 species of Anoles in Cuba and I don't know them well. To me it looks like (from the non-native species that I'm familiar with here in South Florida) that it is an Anolis cristatellus "Puerto Rican Crested Anole". (if they are also established in Cuba)
No creo que sea un A. sagrei. Hay algo como 74 species de Anoles en Cuba y no las conosco. A mi se me parece (de las especie que conosco no nativas aqui en el sur de la Florida que es un Anolis cristatellus "Puerto Rican Crested Anole" (si es que tambien estan establecidos en cuba.)
Bermuda Chub, no se el nombre comun que se usa en Cuba pero el nombre cientifico que dio TomK en la sugerencia es correcto. En una pagina encontre " Chopa Blanca" ???
Gracias Larry, las tuyas son espectaculares.
Thank you Sukanya, but I'm familiar with these and have seen them on Oleander and the adult moth before. So, I'm fairly confident in my ID. These have tuffs of black bristles, not black spikes as the species you suggest. The Tawny coster cats are very similar to our Gulf Fritillary cats (in the same family) that also eat Passionvines, but we don't have Tawny coster here in Florida, USA.
