"Black or melanistic guignas are not uncommon. Above is an absolutely stunning female guigna standing on a small branch holding a lizard in her mouth. Until this photograph was taken we were not sure that guignas ate lizards. When I saw her she froze and stared at the camera. So long as we looked into each other's eyes she remained motionless. When I looked away she swiftly and silently disappeared. Can you find her? Look for the lizard in her mouth. Then look for two brown eyes. Stunningly beautiful!"
