Anolis equestris, 11 June 2016

Anolis equestris, the Cuban knight anole;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (11 June 2016).

A non-native species now well-established throughout south Florida. They’ve recent begun showing up as far north as even Volusia county. A crown-giant ecomorph, the Cuban knight anole is much, much larger than our native Carolina green anoles (Anolis carolinensis). They’re also damn hard to catch by hand!
