Brown Anole
Anolis sagrei
The Brown Anole lives throuhout the Carribean and Florida. In fact in most parts of the state they outnumber the Green Anole which is the only anole native to Florida. The brown anole can climb as well as any other anole species but are more commonly spotted on the ground, basking or hunting. They were my introduction to herpetoculture and they are for many other people as well. All the specimens I've ever had i captured in the wild myself.
