Anoles

Anolis carolinensisThe Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis).Anolis carolinensisAs you might infer from its binomial name, a native of the south. In fact, the only anole native to the continental U.S. There are at least half a dozen non-native species in Florida. The southern-most tip of Texas also has the introduced Brown Anole (A. sagrei), who don’t observe any genus-loyalty and eat the Greens. Anolis carolinensisI tried to get a shot with the pink throat fan extended, as here, but from the side to best show off this mating and territorial marker (males have bigger ones, yadda-yadda).Anolis carolinensisAnother was flashing until I got the zoom on him.

    Lots of green anoles here(Alabama) and I love them. When I move plants to the greenhouse in fall I try to give as many as I can a ride into the greenhouse to eat bugs and slugs all winter. I know how impossible it is to get a picture of the anole “money” as my husband calls it.
