“Extinct” Pinocchio Lizard Found in Ecuador

This lizard commonly known as the Pinocchio lizard (Anolis proboscis) was presumed extinct when it was not seen after the 1960s, it was rediscovered in 2005. The species had been officially sighted only three times since that year until 2013 when researchers found evidence of a breeding colony in the remote regions of Ecuador.

The round pupil in a lizard is generally better adapted for diurnal species whereas slit pupils are found in nocturnal species. Most lizards can see in color and some have opsin proteins which allow them to see in ultraviolet wavelengths that the human eye cannot perceive.
