Anole

Polychrotidae

Description:

Anoles are small and common lizards that can be found throughout the southeastern United States, the Caribbean, and various other regions of the Western world. A large majority of them sport a green coloration, including the only species native to North America, the aptly named green anole, although the green anole can change its color based on its mood and surroundings.

Habitat:

These subtropical lizards are semiarboreal. They usually inhabit regions around 3–6 m (10–20 ft) high. Shrubs, walls, fences, bushes, and short trees are common hiding places.

Notes:

I love these little colorful lizards. This image was shot through my sun room window.
