Thought to be extinct for 50 years, this incredible lizard species has just been rediscovered in the cloud forests of Ecuador. Only the male has this noselike appendage which attracts females. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

like Kei C. saying... Thank You, Kayleen~~

im fascinated by Lizards, too.
once "rescued?" a tiny Iguana Iguana from a "pet store". gave him, Mr. Iggy, excatly the food he needed. Suddenly he started to trust me, in a kind of way.

Finally one more rare species reappeared. I hope they can survive in the wild.

Thanks Kayleen. Great news whenever any type of animal is found after thought to be Extinct. Have to Share this with my Frog group which includes Amphibians.

find him some friends, & let them repopulate in safety!!

he is beautiful, absolutely full of rainbow delight...

lovely at a distance, but in close proximity, i would likely run & scream & flee, till someone sets him free outside.

I'd not heard of it, either--does its nose grow when it lies around all day? (If so, judging by the habits of other lizards, it must have a looong nose...)

Fascinating. One hopes to hear of many more stories of this type!
