The lizards of South Florida seem to be much bigger than the ones found in the north. Not only bigger but for some reason their tails are curled.

Does the largeness of their size have anything to do with the fact that their close relatives are roaming the streets and these guys are determined to keep their territory from being overtaken? Who knows. But they sure are cute little guys.

So strange - I was just looking up FL lizards today and saw an article about how these guys have been eating brown anoles. But they're so cute!

Very interesting Bethany. First off I didn't know what anoles were, had to look it up and realized that all this time I thought they were just another lizard. I had seen a lot of the red throated ones in the past when I was in Florida and again just thought they were lizards.....To me lizards, anoles....all seem harmless and even until reading about the Iguanas, I thought they too were harmless, but guess I am totally wrong.

I always thought the same thing too! But apparently it's a very lizard-eat-lizard world. smile I'm still shocked about the iguanas!
