Happy 4th of July everyone! Could this be a more appropriate creature for today’s festivities? I think not.
This is Meyer’s Anole (Anolis johnmeyeri), which sports an incredibly patriotic dewlap. The males use these during breeding season to attract a mate as well as to claim (and maintain) their territory.
Screw fireworks, I’d rather see one of these beautiful lizards!
