Green anole (Anolis carolinensis)

Many times over the last week on this blog and during the skype calls we have talked about invasive species. Invasive species are a major contributing factor to species extinction around the world. The brown anole is an invasive species and people are worried about the effect it is having on the green anole (Anolis carolinensis). We have seen many green anoles coexisting with the brown anoles on this trip.
