Actually yes ! the one I saw yesterday has a bright yellow dewlap. Thought it was scaring me off, but it only drew me closer and for a longer time while I took photos !

Haha of course they are anoles! Do any of them have their dewlaps out?

hahaha Ashley, I have a few more lizards to post, and guess what... a couple of them are anoles !!
Yaniv and Sarit Wainer have created a new mission "Reptiles of Costa Rica". Maybe they can help out...

This one I saw a lot of in Mexico so knew it right away, it's all those anoles you post that are so tough! I never could get a good photo of a male either, and of course they are really pretty!

thanks Ashley. There were a couple of these by the river. The other one was larger, and quicker! probably the male. Didn't manage a photo.
