Fencin'

I've been meaning to post this since I took it last July....Japalura polygonata xanthostoma is one of the more common lizards in Taiwan. He didn't mind me getting as close as two feet, not even when I set up the tripod and took a huge series of shots from various positions (there was also a baby mantis next to him on the fence)

Hi,
excuse me,
it's a Yellow-mouthed japalura(Japalura polygonata xanthostoma),
take notice of it's throat,
it's yellow not only in mouth,
but also in throat.

Hope it will give you some help :)

Thanks very much for the correction - you're right! In fact, Swinhoe's japalura doesn't even exist up here on Yangmingshan :-)
