Spring Break 2023: Anolis cristatellus

Anolis cristatellus, the Puerto Rican crested anole;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (13 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

The Puerto Rican crested anole was the most-dominant of the anole species I saw on this particular day trip. They were more active and visible than even the Cuban brown anoles, which is quite a feat given the nearly-ubiquitous nature of the latter. Morphologically, Puerto Rican crested anoles and Cuban brown anoles seem quite similar; I’m not sure why the cresteds were more active and visible on this particular day.
