Oakland Nature Preserve, Oakland, Orange County, FL, August 2014.
Around half a foot long (tail to snout length).
Very small individual, possibly a subadult. Found after dark asleep in a dogfennel (Eupatorium capillifolium) bush.
Green Anole on ornamental ginger in an urban area.
believe I spy a green anole with his mouth full of a moth/butterfly The moth/butterfly is almost too big for him to swallow. he even tries to use the fence post to push the moth into his mouth... with limited success... eventually he decides that he must retreat with moth in mouth to a different more private location.
Green Anole watching me trying to fix rain gutter spout.
The Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis) is an arboreal lizard found primarily in the southeastern United States and some Caribbean islands. Other common names include the green anole, American anole and red-throated anole. It is also sometimes referred to as the American chameleon due to its ability to change color from several brown hues to bright green. While many kinds of lizards are capable of changing color, anoles are closely related to iguanas and are not true...
