Brown Anole

Anolis sagrei

Description:

In the early afternoon, I walked over to the right front window. I spotted a reptile, resting on the left wall, near the front door. The color of this reptile, was different shades of brown. This reptile, had a long tail. This reptile, had dark triangular shapes, running from the back of its head, down the length of its back, and down the length of its tail. Diet: Brown anoles, feed on small arthropods, such as: crickets, moths, ants, and grasshoppers....They may also eat, other lizards, such as skinks and the green anole, lizard eggs, and there own molted skin and detached tails.

Habitat:

The generalist habitat of the brown anole, allows populations to grow large and densely. They live in open habitats, on the ground or low tree trunks, and readily adapt to disturbed and urban areas.

Notes:

I spotted this reptile, resting on the left wall, on the outside of my house, near the front door, during the early afternoon.
