I think he's as interested in me as I am in him. See video.
There is one just like this in my back yard in Houston.
Thanks Carol. They really are cute. Sadly, for some reason, we don't see too many around our yard anymore. They used to be everywhere. Might be because of that Cuban Tree frog I spotted a while back. The anole, in this spotting, was quite a find. I've never seen one with such a large ridge before - or since.
Wonderful! So glad you got the video. I am not familiar with anoles. And so cute too! Congrats Laurie. You certainly deserve this honor.
Thank you everyone! I'm thrilled! Thank you Yasser and Project Noah for choosing my spotting. What an honor!
Congratulations, wonderful video and pictures!
Lovely spotting. Congratulations!
Wonderful Video and pictures!
Actually, they were a Cream Colorish Lt. Brown, with the delicate faint white spots. I am so happy to know that I actually saw this lovely new creature in our own yard. I feel like a Spotter now <3. I am on Facebook.
I just told my sister yesterday that there were two new lizard types I saw in the front yard. They had the ridges ,were a little browner with faint white spots. They walked slower than the other big lizards and seemed to sort of walk/dance slowly around each other. Today,I saw them wrapped around each other. At first I thought it was one Lizard and then the 2nd one appeared.I live in Bradenton Florida. They seemed curious about me too ;)
Grate photos and video!Congratulations!
Congratulations Laurie! This brown anole was chosen as Spotting of the Day! We loved the photos and accompanying video."The brown anole is a highly invasive lizard native to Cuba and the Bahamas. With a tendency to reach high population densities, it feeds on almost anything it can fit in its mouth. Notice the exceptionally pronounced ridge on this specimen and watch how it displays its dewlap in the associated video.

Ctsetan, I see what you mean about the coloring. I didn't notice that before. It was the same lizard though. Glad you found that photo of another brown anole with the dragon ridge on the back. I couldn't find one that looked like that, with that large of a ridge, when I was searching for info. Thanks!
hg William3, I think he thought he might have to fight me. He was trying to scare me away. I think he's a pretty cute guy too, Karen.CJulen, Thanks for the nice comments. I don't think he knew what to think of me (or my camcorder).
if the first two pics and the third are same (third one seems much more pigmented)check this, http://www.jaxshells.org/9612.htm
Great.... this one is an amazing lizard... here in india, Sitana ponticeriana (fan-throated lizard) does the same guller displays for territorial disputes and for attracting females.
I love these captures! The video is great - he does seem interested in you.
What a cute little guy!
they do that when they get aggressive and fight other males its the same anole i believe or a bark anole maybe
Not sure. This one is not like most of ours too but on Wikipedia, at the bottom of the page, was a photo of one with a ridge. Not as large of a ridge but it did have one. I would love to know what it is.
My anoles do not have a dragon ridge on their back, are we sure this is an ordinary anole?
