is a species of lizard in the Polychrotidae family, and the largest species of anole. Other common names include Cuban knight anole.
It is native to Cuba, but has been introduced into Miami-Dade (including Miami Beach), Broward, Palm Beach, and Collier counties of Florida. It grows to a length of 13 to 20 inches (33 to 51 cm) including the tail. It is now widely introduced in South Florida where it reproduces and spreads readily. They can not withstand freezing temperatures and in winter freezes in south Florida they drop semi-consciously from tree canopies. In its native Cuba this large anole is called “chispojo”.
