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.

    Never seen his kind before. Amazingly, he’s brightly colored. Thanks for sharing, Jodi.


Oh, the twisted thoughts that spin round my head. Please share yours!
