Green Anole

Green Anole

Animal Summary

When you come in the education center you will have to look hard for the green anoles because they like to hide in their exhibit of branches, moss, and rocks. They can be either bright green or dark brown depending on their mood, temperature, humidity and health.


  • If caught by the tail a green anole will amputate or loose its tail in order to escape.
  • Green anoles have adhesive lamellae or membranes on their foot-pads for crawling along walls like geckos.
  • The male green anole has a colored flap of skin on their throat called a dewlap. They flare out the dewlap for territorial or courtship displays.

Green anole numbers are secure at this time.


There are no threats to the green anole.
