  1. Awesome! We are lizard-less in the north! Posted one year ago
    1. You have five-lined skinks, don't you?

      This individual was very strange. The cooler weather had him acting poo-brained! :P

      1. The five-lined skink range does extend a bit into CT, but I not seen one - yet!

        Uh oh, not poo-brained...Did it say, "derp"?

The Carolina anole is an arboreal lizard found primarily in the southeastern United States and some Caribbean islands. Other common names include the green anole, American anole and red-throated anole. It is also sometimes referred to as the American chameleon due to its ability to change color from several brown hues to bright green. While many kinds of lizards are capable of changing color, anoles are closely related to iguanas and are not true chameleons.
