Green Anoles

Paul's favorite thing to do is walk around the garden and look for lizards. I decided to do a little research and found that our lizards are called Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis) . They are found primarily in the southeastern US, some Carribbean islands and right here in Bedford, Texas at P & B's Garden. It is also sometimes referred to as the American chameleon due to its color-changing abilities; however, it is not a true chameleon.

 

 

We always see the lizards extending out their neck and I found in my research that this is how they court the female.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last summer I captured this shot on our sago palm.? The lizard is molting.

 

According to the information I found Anoles turn dark when they are stressed out.

 

Paul sure loves the lizards, and I sure love Paul !
