      Watch your pets around the blue-tailed skinks (which are actually not TRUE blue-tailed skinks – those are native to Australia – but are of the Plestiodon family and only the juvies have the blue tail). I was told by two different vets that they are poisonous if a dog ingests them (would assume the same for a cat). We get a lot of Plestiodons around here; the only anole we have seen since moving here was in the summer of 2008, when my oldest caught one at the community playground. LOL

        We’ve got those. Glad to know about the fact that they are poisonous to animals! What a funny name for such a beautiful creature. We’ve had a few living in our garage … eating the spiders and such (at least that’s what the bug guy tells us).

    Nice pictures! I live up at Lake Norman and love Anoles. I have seen tons of them in Coastal SC and a few in Southern Charlotte, but have never seen them up on the north side of town. I wish I had some in my yard!

      Chris there does seem to be a sharp cut off in there range as you go north. Wonder if this mild winter might bring them closer to Lake Norma this Spring.

    Great writeup! I snapped a photo of an anole when I was at Sunset Beach last summer but didn’t quite know what it was. Thanks for the heads up. Here’s the photo I got of one hanging out on a blue hydrangea: http://eric_crews.500px.com/wildlife/#/18

    My lab ate a green anole and vomited three times. He was OK this morning.
