Nice photo Glenn!
Thanks Larry, they don’t appear to be too skittish. Going to have to dig out my old SLR with a bigger lens. I am unhappy about the intrusion into the native habitat. They’re not a bad looking lizard though. Take Care
I.m just glad we don’t have them over here Glenn lol! Don’t fancy this running into the house!
Well there are 53 different varieties, I believe these are the Cuban Sub-Species!I saw them years ago about 100 miles north of me. That was 20 years ago.Hope they don’t predate the local anole lizards. Oh well!
This is a wonderful capture of a beautiful looking Lizard Glenn we dont have them in Scotland we get Foxes and Deer in our gardens well done lee
Hello Lee, I am not in a rural setting. Florida is being invaded by non-indigenous species. Giant Burmese and Rock Pythons, Monitor lizard, these guys, Cuban anole lizard, snakehead fish, cobras, peacock bass, Red Devil Cichlids, expanding population of wild hogs, Monk Parrots, Muscovey Duck. It is never ending drain on the natural ecosystem. Wouldn’t mind a beautiful Deer or fox. Sounds like a wonderful Dream! Thanks for the comments, it is a larger more robust version of the Anole species.
Thanks Ray, put out a “Coming to a Neighborhood near you” shout out to the populations!
Appreciate your featuring my image! Thanks Trish!
Super capture Glenn.
Thanks Mark, there is at least one mating pair, as I caught the pair mating!Ratz! Appreciate you encouragement!Glenn
Super capture, Glenn !Congrats on the feature !
Jan, thank you for your kind words and congratulations. Neat huh?
Fantastic find & capture!! I like his curly tail!
Howdy Angie, this one was resting, usually it is straight up and curled above it’s back. Thanks for your lovely comments. Since they are an invasive species, I am not quite so glad to see it [:-( !
He’s beautiful, great work
Hello Joy, he is beautiful, thanks for your kind words. He’d be much more beautiful in his native habitat!
