Red-throated anole

Anolis carolinensis


This anole, was resting on a bush morning glory plant (Ipomoea carnea). This anole can change colors, for which people call them chameleons. They rest on these plants to catch their prey (wasps), because there are many wildflowers next to this plant, and wasps will always roam around the surrounding plants. This anole has a white underside, and teal around the eyes.


In my garden, Fort Worth, Texas.
