The Eastern Fox Snake,Elaphe gloydi, has a very restricted range near the Great Lakes Huron and Erie, and found in Ontario in Canada and Ohio and Michigan in the U.S. Even in this range it is uncommon. It is said to be fairly docile, biting only if handled. Here in Ontario it is listed as Threatened and protected under the Species at Risk Act.

My thanks to John Sullivan for letting me know that this is a brown phase of the Green Anole. My original remarks are below.

The Brown Anole, Anolis sagrei, is native to Cuba and the Bahamas and has been widely introduced elsewhere including Hawaii where this image was taken. It is very invasive, attaining high population densities and out competing other lizard species such as the 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.
