Spring Break 2018: The Western Bearded Anole

Anolis (Chamaeleolis) barbatus, the Western bearded anole (captive);
Miami-Dade county, Florida (12 May 2018).
Series: Spring Break 2018.

Native to Cuba, the Western bearded anole is a heap of awesome, bumpy anole action. These photographs are of a few specimens on display during the 2018 Anolis Symposium in Coral Gables, Florida. To the best of my knowledge, we don’t have any publicly-noted established-populations of these massive anoles in Florida… yet. Give it time, though. Heh. Florida loves to pick up the strays. I personally wouldn’t mind stumbling across one of these tankers on some random Tuesday. Incredible textures.
