A relatively small anole with a long tail. Can have cool diamond/striped patterns on its back and can also turn moderately green. Very frequent near neighborhoods and open farms with fences. The dewlap (skin under neck) color is bright orange to light red. Few females have large dewlaps and males usually always have a large dewlap. When cornered, a male will puff his dewlap and bob his head up and down. This just means they are trying to scare you away. They are also found basking out on foam panels because they insulate heat well ( they are cold blooded animals). Thanks and I hope you found my description helpful.
Open fields with fences (they will be basking on the fences). Bushy and wet areas, many times after rain. In neighborhoods and housed areas. In the woods or forests.
