Finally caught a male anole this morning...(or maybe he caught me!) Definitely much more aggressive than the females! He started out as bright green (before capture) and ended up as a dark brown (after capture). I was finally able to get a side view of him with his red throat extended...apparently they use it for attracting a mate AND to intimidate would be attackers! (He was NOT happy with me!)
I love these little guys , and they're all over the place around me. I trained one, using mealworms. When it saw me, it would come closer and take a worm from my fingers, finally sitting and eating in my hand one day. I named her Annie.
Then I got chickens, and all lizards now wisely disappear when the birds are near !
