  5. Incredible island endemic!

    I'm seeing a small challenge in the common name. It seems multiple species carry the common name "Rainbow lizard" or "Rainbow whiptail". This could be a problem when people type it when identifying, because it can lead to multiple species, not necessarily the correct one. I tried to find a more explicit common name but no luck so far.

    1. Hmmm yeah, I couldn't find anything else either. If you'd like, I could make up something, like Old Providence Rainbow whiptail of something ;) Posted 2 years ago
