Carolina Anole (Anolis carolinensis) I think this individual was soaking up as much sunlight as possible before the even colder weather moved in. You can already see the stress/cold has caused a color change from green to dark grey! Anolis carolinensis,Carolina anole,Fall,Geotagged,United States Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

    1. Thank you, Marta! Posted one year ago
  2. Great find. I just love lizzards, geckos and all other kind of reptiles. In that respect is Netherlands not a good place, it only has a handful of each species of lizzards, snakes, frogs and toads. Posted one year ago
    1. I love them as well! This species is often found basking in the sun. I've found it in both woodland areas as well as in residential areas. I had one sneak into my kitchen just two weeks ago (after the temperature increased for a short time)!

      We also have several other lizards, skinks, turtles, and snakes in my area. Alligators have not yet expanded their range this far North, but I've heard of the occasional find.

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.
