ScienceDaily (Nov. 26, 2012) — One tropical lizard's tolerance to cold is stiffer than scientists had suspected. A new study shows that the Puerto Rican lizard Anolis cristatellus has adapted to the cooler winters of Miami. The results also suggest that this lizard may be able to tolerate temperature variations caused by climate change.

Overheated lizards – Radiocápsula Ciencia Puerto Rico

Wilson Javier Gonzalez-Espada's picture

The Puerto Rican lizard, "Anolis cristatellus", has two populations, one living in dry forests (Guánica, Aguirre, Boquerón and Ceiba) and one living in humid forests (Guajataca, Cambalache, La Vega and Mata de Plátano). Those living in dry forests are reaching their maximum temperature and could be a victim of climate change.
