The end of a successful trip

I've just finished my last day of running lizards (on this trip)! Overall, it was a great success. When I left to come down here, thermal performance curves had been measured for only three species of Caribbean anole, and now we have data for eight! Below is one of my sprint videos. This particular example is the Puerto Rican A. gundlachi running at a body temperature of 35C. This is a high-elevation, cool-climate species, but, nonetheless it can run very well at such a high temperature. Music by Ghostface Killa and Rat-a-tat.
