Brown Anole

Anolis sagrei


The brown anole is normally a light brown color with darker brown to black markings on its back, and several tan to light color lines on its sides. Like other anoles, it can change color, in this case a darker brown to black. Its dewlap ranges from yellow to orange-red.


Brown anoles are found in Cuba and the Bahamas. These lizards live in almost any habitat and are often seen in suburban and urban areas. They occur in areas with open vegetation, grasses, shrubs and in moist forested areas.
