Brown Anole

This lizard is a Brown Anole in Florida’s Sarasota Botanical Gardens, This reptile is native to Cuba and the Bahamas, but is now an invasive species in the southern United States. Many are escaped pets. The species is found in Florida, Georgia, Texas, southern California, and Hawaii. Brown Anoles eat almost anything they can catch and have high reproductive rates. They out-compete native lizards, such as Green Anoles, which have been forced into treetops (Wekipedia).
