This fabulous close-up of a young green anole was taken by Flickr user Jenna Stirling in her backyard in Texas. Never seen an anole before? Me neither. But now I know it’s a lizard closely related to the iguana, though because it can change its skin color and run up walls, the anole is often mistaken for a chameleon or gecko. Cool, heh?

    Anoles are some of the best lizards to keep as pets. Really easy to care for, and they don’t need much room. It is a blast to watch them hunt for crickets or flies. That is an awesome picture of a Green Anole. What a cutie!
