Carolina anole (♀)

Anolis carolinensis


A slender, elegant lizard with a white dorsal stripe, which indicates that this is a female anole.


This arboreal lizard was seen in the swamp in Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve in Louisiana. It’s native to the southeastern US.


If you look closely, there’s an ant on her tail. :)
