Description

We were at one of the observation stands overlooking the area where all of the large birds were. I looked down and saw a green anole that was partially camouflaged with the wood the observation stand was made of. I noticed that the eyelids of the animal did not change color so they stayed green while the rest of the animal had gone mostly brown. I also noticed that the white markings down the spine look like the vertebrae are visible which is pretty interesting. After a few minutes I looked back down and the green anole had gone green again before scurrying off.

Description

This anole was on a tree when we caught it to identify it. It had been doing push up displays on the tree but it was not flaring its dewlap so this was probably not a reproductive male. There were many green anoles here, including reproducing males with red dewlaps that they were flaring. We saw many jumping around from tree to tree.

Description from Wikipedia

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...
