Green Anole, Anolis carolinensis

The Green Anole, Anolis carolinensis, is native to North America, ranging from the coastal plains of the Eastern United States to the Caribbean coast of Texas. It has also been introduced to Hawaii. They are very teritorial and males will display their colorful dewlap at the throat, as seen in the image.

  2. Thanks Jill,

    I had never run into them before seeing them in Hawaii, all\though I have often been in their range in the continental U.S. A very interesting species.

    Cheers, Harold
