Photos of El Salvador

Enjoy the pictures of leguans from El Salvador.


The Brown Basilisk or Striped Basilisk (Basiliscus vittatus)

Cherengeca is the local name for this leguan.

Basilisks have large hind feet, long toes, and sharp claws. They are day-active. Adults reach beween 30 cm and 60 cm in length. As you can see in the photos, they are very hard to detect because of their outstanding camouflage.
