This looks more like a brown anole to me. Look at its snout length. It's much shorter than that of a green anole.

Thanks, Dr. Ramirez, for telling me about the correction on this spotting. I feel honored to have found something and gotten a good picture of it that you weren't aware had made it to South Texas yet. :)

Tracy we may have anotehr sighting of a Brown Anole. The diamond pattern on the back is found on females of this species. Check out suzannekconway's post. Now it's getting confusing.

Now by looking at it on the photograph here, it looks like a Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis).
