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