Green Anole in Hawaii


A visitor to my blog informed me of the identity of this lizard. It does appear to be a Green Anole, a species native to North America, but introduced in Hawaii. This one was hunting insects in the jungle along Kauai's north shore on November 12, and almost qualified as a "flyer" by its very efficient leaps from leaf to leaf.

This looks like an anole, which are common in Houston, TX.

Thank you! I'm always pleased to learn something new about wild creatures. I looked up "Anole" on the web, and I have no doubt that you are correct. I will change my caption accordingly.
