Thanks to Mitch Ray and 1Sarah2 for teaching me and getting me interested in these lovely creatures!
@ MitchRay and 1Sarah2,http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/688...I found a male.
Thanks for sharing Sarah ! enjoyed it! What a change from Black to Brown!
Promised anole sequence posted.http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/688...
Thank you for the info. So basically Anoles have the ability to change color.
I would guess female in this particular critter. Anoles are a family (or subfamily depending on who you ask) of lizards that are common in the New World and closely related to iguanas.
thanks Sarah. I did not see any blue at all in this lizard.
Sarah , I am looking forward to your spotting on Anoles!!
You're very welcome! What caught my attention was your question about anoles. That seems to be most of what I find around here. I hope the links do help. Today, I caught a brown anole going though a color change but have yet to post the sequence. You might find it interesting. Should be up in the next couple of days.
Thanks Sarah! Thanks to people like you and Mitch who make the kingdom of reptiles and Amphibians more interesting and understandable!
MitchRay, Are you thinking female? I would have loved to see more of the blue coloration on the back if you're thinking it is a male.Emma, as a reference,http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?searc...
Maybe this will helphttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anole
I still have to read about Reptiles and Amphibians. What are Anoles?
Any particular reason you're thinking this is a Garden Lizard? I'm definitely thinking something in the Genus Scleroporus, possibly a Western Fence Lizard (Scleroporus occidentalis)
Thanks Alice and Nicholas. :)
Looks typically desert lizard. Nice.
Thank you Medi!! :)
