Anolis equestris, 11 June 2016

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

If any lizard could play a 1940s mob boss, I do believe it would be Anolis equestris. Slap a cigar in that mouth, and the rest is already done. What a fantastically determined and rowdy species the Cuban knight anole is. Just look at that mouth! Anyhow, this large, non-native species has steadily been making its way north up the Florida peninsula. They’ve even started to show up in Volusia County in recent years. This particular Cuban knight anole was photographed in Miami-Dade county.
