Green Anole

Anolis sp.


This is a small, vivid green anole of around 7-8 cm. Anoles form part of a very large genus of Iguanians comprising more than 391 species. Aniolis represents the world's most species-rich genus of Tetrapods




The ecosystems nearby have recently succumbed to a forest fire that wiped a great amount of forest area, this organism has probably been displaced by it, which explains why it has never been seen before, even less in the open road, where it was found.

I'm not certain but that head crest looks similar to a false chameleon
