Curacao day five

Alex and Matt set out some rodent traps last night, and Alex and I went to check them this morning.  We didn’t actually find any rodents, but we did get a lot of pretty pictures of Cnemidophorus.  We also found a back road to a place called Watamula.  Watamula is said to be the best dive on Curacao, but it’s really only easily accessible by boat.

The lifting of pallets is a sacred ritual for herpetologists, as pallets are the natural habitat of many lizard species.  It is widely believed that T Rex routinely relaxed under the megapallets of the late Cretaceous.  Widely believed by me, anyway.
