Not Your Ordinary Lizard

Scientists have found a new lizard species in the Galapagos! And that sucker is big, striped, and pinky-colored. Not to mention, um, unattractive. How is it that these keen observers have missed a big pink lizard all these years? Well, it was actually spotted in the 1980's but was not determined to be a new species until now. It might have been a frivolous version of one of the garden-variety lizards. You just don't know. For more information on the other denizens of the Galapagos, read:
