Hawaii

 

For Christmas break in 2009, our family went to Hawaii. I had never been there before, and I had heard a lot about the cool introduced herps there. But I didn’t really expect to see much since we were only there for a week on Maui. We didn’t see many different species, but the Jackson’s Chameleon made up for the lack of diversity!

These guys were everywhere:


A kind of gross dead gecko clinging to the side of a building...


The view from a helicopter:

A monster Cane Toad (Bufo marinus):
The best find of the trip! A Jackson’s Chameleon (Chamaleo jacksoni) at the “Enchanting Floral Gardens”!!!
Brown Anoles (Anolis sagrei) were very common in a park that we went to:
Well, that’s basically it. As I said, not much in species, but the Jackson’s Chameleon was still totally awesome!
