Hey there, bright green anole
Did I catch you flirtin’ with me?
Givin’ me that big blue eye
What a reptilian cutie pie!
Shiny scales fitting you like a glove,
Your cheeks are blushing the color of love!
Huh? That’s not what you mean your dewlap to say?
What you really want is for me, to go away!
We are lucky to have this little guy living on our patio. From what I can find on the interwebz, I think he is a Carolina anole.
The Carolina anole is an arboreal lizard found primarily in the southeastern United States and some Caribbean islands. Other common names include, the green anole, American anole and red-throated anole.
You can read more about him here, on Wikipedia.
