a little late, but thanks for sharing! fla is such a weird place, innit? i have to admit that while i very very much prefer the human society here in Europe, the one thing i absolutely miss about North America is the access to raw, rugged nature. keep on sharing, please!!

I understand that a couple basilisk species are now reproducing in FL. One of their common names is "Jesus lizard" for their ability to run across the surface of water. Was your water walker green or brown?
