University published a study of the anole populations in Science, showing that, over the course of 15 years and 20 generations, the green anoles
on multiple invaded islands first changed their behavior to live higher in the trees, then developed adaptations suited to life on small branches: bigger toe pads and more of the small flaps on the bottoms of their toes that allow them to stick to surfaces.
Functional genomics studies are needed to better understand the potential role and importance of these and other physiological processes to temperature-mediated local adaptation within the green anole

4 According to the article, sound vibrations can reach the inner ear of a green anole
feed on live insects and a variety of larger creatures feed on them, which may account for their preference for yards and patios, places they're less likely to share with other predators.
It's the green anole
, Anolis carolinensis--one of 3,000 species of lizards worldwide, the northernmost of 200 lizards attached to the genus Anolis, and denizen exclusively of the southeastern United States, from southern Virginia to Florida and west to eastern Texas.
The green anole
lizard (Anolis carolinensis) - a native of the Southeastern United States - is the first non-bird species of reptile to have its genome sequenced and assembled.
the first time I saw a green anole
, somebody was wearing it.
The remaining lizard fauna consisted of the five-lined skink, Eumeces fasciatus; the coal skink, Eumeces anthracinus; and the green anole
, Anolis carolinesis.
Among reptiles are a few such pairs (for example, broad-headed versus Great Plains skinks), but most eastern species like the green anole
and massasauga lack close western relatives in the area.
However, green anole
(Anolis carolinensis) lizards found in the southern U.
