Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis)

Green anole is the only anole species native to the U.S. They compete with exotics for territory and you can help them by planting taller shrubbery. The natives are willing to climb up higher than the brown anole, so if you provide this type of habitat they will stand a better chance.

  1. Excellent tip! When I plan my Florida garden one day, I’ll do just that – plant higher shrubs.
