Green Anole in an ornamental plant
Hard to take a picture b/c it's so fast
When I first saw it, it was brown but the dorsal stripe was very visible. Hopped onto a leaf and quickly turned green with dorsal stripe still visible. Beautiful creature!!
This one is small - About 4" total.
The First Critter spotting of the year! A few steps into Black Bayou and I found it basking on a log.
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.
