Pinocchio Lizzard Mindo Cloud Forest

Scientists were amazed when discovering a creature that was thought to be extinct for decades. The lizard with a nose like Pinocchio is alive and is enjoying life in Ecuador's cloud forest. According to the lucky person that photographed the lizard, Alejandro Arteaga, many believed this was only a mythological creature. Reports date back to the 1950s describing the existence of the lizard in Mindo Cloud Forest.  We are more than excited to include Mindo as one of our favorite destinations. Maybe you can be the next person spotting this magical creature!
