Anolis carolinensis, the Carolina green anole;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (13 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023
Here’s another native Carolina green anole, a male, from my day trip through Coral Gables and South Miami. This individual had taken a bit of damage somewhere back in its timeline. Its dewlap was fairly damaged and malformed. I wonder to what extent a damaged dewlap messes up a male anole’s ability to impress the ladies and communicate with other anoles?
