Breeding Anoles

Not sure if this is the right place for these but I just thought I would share. I walked out on my patio and this is what I saw. This guy had no shame in his game.

Which species of anole is that? I'm not up to date on all the ones that are in Florida now. Is it a bark anole?

I'm pretty sure it's Anolis sagrei.

The bark anole, A. distichus, is only found closer to Miami on the other coast. However, within Miami they are EVERYWHERE! Their pattern tends to be more spotted and they have a white/light yellowish dewlap.

Very nice "Action Shot" by the way. I like the look he is giving you....."Hey man do you mind?"

Yea he wasn't too happy, after that second pic he bolted and the poor female fell. But I've never seen anoles in action before, so it was cool to see them just doing what they do best. They're everywhere down here.

Unfortunately, yes. The brown anole is an invasive species that has taken over much of the south! I did my graduate work just north of you in Tampa so I saw them all the time! If you haven't gotten the chance head down to Miami (Coral Cables area), you should you will see some stuff that you had no idea was even in FL. When we were there in May doing some research we found brown basilisks just sunning themselves on a road! Not to mention the MANY invasive anole species.

I had the opportunity to learn a lot about these guys during 2008 when I helped with a study about brown anoles and how they're outcompeting the greens on a large scale. Miami was pretty incredible, too. I'll bet I saw at least 5 species of anoles in one park.

Cool, where did you get a chance to work on this research? We are working on some interesting things regarding the invasion front of brown anoles and its effect on the green anole. We found a total of 6 species of Anolis all over Miami. I was amazed at some of the stuff we found! It's kind of sad actually that most of the lizards you see in the Miami area should not be there!
