EOL fellow Rosario Castañeda takes us to the back rooms of Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology, searching through dozens of jars of pickled anole lizards to see the traces of evolution in action. These faded specimens don’t much resemble these vivid animals in life, as they skitter along branches and tree trunks in their native tropics. But to the trained eye, they're revealing secrets. Ari Daniel Shapiro reports.
