Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei)

Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei)

The brown/Cuban anole is the most common exotic lizard in Florida and has been recorded in every peninsular county. They are conspicuous around homes in residential areas and among ornamental vegetation in parking lots. Although our native green anoles can coexist with brown anoles, there is competition between these species for food and space. The color patterns of this species are highly variable, but are always shades of brown.
