Found on leaf at night in an Agroforest area.
"I believe this is a green anole. We seem to have at least two in our garden, and one of them appears to be male, at least from the reddish dewlap we occasionally see extended (toward the other one, perhaps for mating).
"In the third photo, the lizard is brown, not green, but the white belly suggests that it is still the same anole.
"... they’re proliferating in our yard."

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.
