    what a nice smile.

    a very happy iguana?

    With apologies to the iguana, it looks uncannily like John McCain.

    Only if you put lipstick on it. ;)

    That smile is because he’s wondering if you taste good.

    What a great shot. I really hope to go there sometime.

    more like he’s eyeing my salad.

    these guys are strict vegetarians, IIRC.

    They dive in shallow water to feed on algae.

    I know, but that isn’t nearly as funny.

    Not McCain. Does this lizard look scared?

    Isn’t that a bit unfair? The iguana is much better looking.

    Danio – Did all hell just break loose on your end of the state with wind & rain? It’s suddenly ugly here.

    That huge lizard has a look on it’s face like my Bulldog. Pleased about something. ;o)

    A face for radio, in my opinion.

    I believe Captain James T. Kirk once fought one of these.

    Aaaawwww! Cute!

    Isn’t that the type they used as cut rate dinosaurs in old adventure flicks? They’d past a big fin on their back and film them in Up-Close-O-Vision while offscreen a stagehand pokes it with a plastic stegosaurus.

    Actually, that was a pretty effective scene when I was a kid.

    Poor quality. Some tool videoed their TV screen. Der.

    Iguana is also one helluva lot younger and smarter.

    Great ad for the benefits of eating seaweed.

    A touch of lip-gloss would help, though.

    I really hope you’re sending these to Cute Overload, PZ. This one’s a keeper.

    I know this is off-topic, but a Mexican website for atheists was hacked to the point of going offline and losing it’s host, and it seems it was because an Atheist Pride March they were organizing:

    And it seems I’m the only one that has translated the news…

    I love these guys! They look unbelievable swimming underwater. Lizards could soooo take an octopus! (oooh, did I just go there?)

    Thank you for posting this, PZ. It made my day, though I am probably anthropomorphizing on some level. :)

    Evidently, the Galapagos is not immune to the global obesity epidemic.

    Thank your for posting that picture. Amblyrhynchus cristatus was the first scientific name that I learned at the tender age of 6 or 7 years old.
