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.

While many kinds of lizards are capable of changing color, anoles are closely related to iguanas and are not true...
