Brown Anole

Anolis sagrei

Description:

Around 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon, I was looking through the left front window, when I spotted one reptile, trying to chew and swallow, a prey insect that it caught. Only one photo came out, but I did get to watch this reptile, trying to chew and swallow its prey. This reptile stayed in this position for about two minutes, before moving forward about six inches, and was now, next to the green plants. This reptile, stayed in this new position, for about two minutes, still trying to chew and swallow, this prey insect. Finally, this reptile did succeed, in chewing and swallowing this prey insect, after a considerable length of time. Afterwards, this reptile disappeared into the green plants and bushes. This prey insect was large, and was sticking out of the reptiles mouth. I did get to see, from start to finish, this reptile trying to chew and swallow, this large, prey insect.

Habitat:

I spotted this reptile, on the left side of the front porch, right next to one of the left side walls.

Notes:

Early in the afternoon, I was looking through the left front window, and I spotted one reptile, that was on the left side of the front porch, right next to one of the left side walls, trying to chew and swallow, a large prey insect, that it had in its mouth. After a considerable amount of time, this reptile did succeed, in chewing and swallowing, this large prey insect, that it had in its mouth.
