I caught this baby (female?) equestris in my back yard. She is so awesome. The night she was caught, she was stressed and brown. The next day she turned green to brown when I held her, but she was calm. The second day she was green when I held her. This is the third day and now she'll jump on my hand when I put it in her cage. I think she knows it's a way out. She'll lie on my hand or arm, completely calm, scoping out the surroundings. She's actually less skittish than one of the bearded dragons I own.
Twice today when placing her back in her cage, she spotted one of the small segrei I'd placed in there for her, and launched herself from my hand and caught them both times.
Coolest lizard ever!
Anolis is a genus of lizards belonging to the family Dactyloidae. With nearly 400 species, Anolis represents the world's most species-rich amniote genus. Several species of Anolis are occasionally ascribed to the genus Norops, but the validity of the Norops genus is not widely accepted. The green anole (Anolis carolinensis) has recently become the first reptile to have its complete genome sequenced.
