Have your say

This little fella is a Hispaniolan Galliwasp (Diploglossus warreni).

Measuring just 45cm and with brown colourings, Hispaniolan Galliwasps are certainly not the largest or most colourful but they are undoubtedly one of the world’s rarest lizards.

They inhabit the forests of Haiti and the Dominican Republic – although they are now so rare they are only found in one area of Haiti and are thought to be already extinct in the Dominican Republic.
