Anole by tanikel Anole by tanikel
Name: Brown Anole
Date: October 21st, 2012
Location: Bradenton, FL
Conservation Status: Least Concern

Did you know? This species is highly invasive. In its introduced range (Florida
and southern Georgia), it reaches exceptionally high population densities, is capable of
expanding its range very quickly, and both out-competes and consumes many species
of native lizards such as the green anole.

I grew up catching and 'taming' these guys at this very house. Some habits are too ingrained
to ever really forget - he was in my hand before I even thought about catching him. The
ninjababy was excited about being able to pet a 'wizard'. xD

Lol, I just caught a green anole and a green tree frog the other day. The south is good for catching lizards, snakes, frogs, etc

I miss the south.  Used to be able to catch all kinds of awesome animals all day.  Maryland...not so much.

Yeah, I love it doen here, I went to Boston and DANG, cold, wet rainy, people talking funny...... It was fun, but still, it is hard to get directions because some of them have thick accents and eventually I just nod,thank them and walk away.

Hahaha.  You're brave.  That accent is terrifying. 
Until I joined the Army, cold was sixty degrees.  xD

I think Korea was more interesting, I ate from the side carts and from the fish market(had a restaurant upstairs) , you picked out a fish, shark , octopus or whatever they had and they cooked it for you. I went to the DMZ and we got to go to the North (Technically), we did not tour the North, all the guys on the other side had raybands and binoculars.

I've never seen an anole such as this. I grew up catching and taming the green ones. I just love them!
tanikel Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013   Photographer
Lucky! The green ones don't live down where I grew up. I had to go two hours north to see them. They're awesome lizards, haha.

Yes, they are! The crazy thing is they are quite easy to find around here and they sell them in pet stores!
tanikel Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013   Photographer
Whaaat?  I didn't know they were sold for pets.  o.O
It does make sense, though.  They're pretty chill lizards.  My friends and I had a blast catching them and 'taming' them.
