Anolis carolinensis, 13 July 2014

Anolis carolinensis, the Carolina green anole;
Volusia county, Florida (13 July 2014).

At our previous residence in Ormond Beach, we had a small group of Carolina green anoles who would be active at night. Generally speaking, this is a diurnal species, meaning they’re active by day and sleep at night. It seems our moderately well-lit back patio helped lull some of them into more-nocturnal habits. They likely benefited from the array of insect life drawn to our patio lights. Them is good eats, you might say.
