Brown Anole
Anolis sargei
The Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei) is also sometimes called the Bahamian Anole or Cuban Brown Anole. It is a native lizard to Cuba and the Bahamas, but it has been introduced into the southeastern United States and may be found commonly in parts of Florida and elsewhere. It is now being found even in Texas. There is evidence that this highly invasive species is having negative effects on the native Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis). The first 4 shots on this page, of a displaying male, were taken on South Padre Island, Cameron Co., Texas, in April, 2009, with a Canon EOS 50D and an EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash.
