This is one of the world's only pure blue lizards, and unfortunately it's on the verge of extinction. The Blue Anole (Anolis gorgonae) looks like a little slice of sky as it slinks through the dense forests of Gorgona. The lizard is so reclusive and rare that scientists have a hard time even estimating what the total population of the species may be. #The Blue Anole #blue lizard #photography

It's biology~~~~They have been around a lot longer than we care to think about....They have no legs, eyes, or even an organ that we could call a brain, but we do know that everything evolves so it is not beyond reason that they as a species are too. Yet from the look of them they haven't changed all that much, 100 million years ago we would still recognize a tree as a tree. So I ask you, what are they evolving if what we see has not really changed? ~~Amergin

REDUCE: Animals going extinct. If we all came together, we could creat more balance through out the world. If we came together as a WHOLE, and understood that balance is essential to life. Look at us, we(americans) get everything we want, and because the good outweighs the bad, we forgot what it meant to feel or even to sacrifice.
