From top-to-top and side-to-side, but number 4 is unknown, so i skipped that one. But the rest are too easy. The first is a rose-bellied lizard, second and so forth a stream Anole. Brown Anole, Forest Cloudy anole, Rose-cheeked Mud Turtle, Common Costa Rican Mud Turtle, Stream Anole, and finally a Rose-bellied Lizard.

Thanks, DOR, but as far as I can google the scientific names of your ID attempts, they seem to relate mostly to species who do not occur on the Yucatan Peninsula?

So you changed from a beggar to a researcher. Trust everyone, it works out better in the long run. Books work really good too. can you read? Ooops, was that rude, or just a stupid question? "mama says, stupid is, is what stupid dues."

It's sad to think what is lacking in some people's lives that they're reduced to actually spending time on the internet doing that. It ain't good for you, him, or any the rest of us. I honestly pray that you find something more fulfilling for yourself.

DOR, who bit you? I thought my reply was friendly? Please read the title of a post before coming up with names that stick to herps of another country, especially if you can't resist calling my request too easy. We read and used field guides and papers to ID the majority of the 50+ species we found in our week on the peninsula. The ones I am asking about are tough. You would know that if you had any notion of the herps of that area. And if you would have been around a bit more you would know that asking for ID help is applauded and not frowned upon around here. Another great thing about this forum is that you can tell who's talking from previous posts such as http://www.fieldherpforum.com/forum/vie ... hp?t=17282. Can't say you have contributed anything that warrants that high horse of yours.
