#green anole

so I caught an anole to show my mom bc she loves reptiles!
she held it gently and baby-talked a ton. it went from brown to bright green, kept closing its eyes, and even let her rub its lil’ chin while craning its neck like a cat. it didn’t struggle, bite, or flare up. it seemed so relaxed, and eventually even chose to sit calmly on my mom’s hand like a pet.
when taken back outside, it wouldn’t leave my palm. I had to place it on the ground by hand just so the sweetpea could go home. I felt blessed.
TLDR; MY MOM IS A LIZARD WHISPERER??
((if any reptile-lovers notice negative behavior being displayed in this video, please say something!! I want to avoid causing lizards any needless injury and/or stress!))

Green and brown anole study. This was a request from @pastelgoob . If you have any favourite animals you'd like me to draw I'm happy to take requests!

My mom woke me up to show me this.
She got a notification that there was motion at our front door. She was expecting an Amazon package, but instead we got a Geico salesman.

One of the Green Anoles witnessed me watering my plants when it was 100 deg out and needed in on the action. He flopped out of the bush (while brown) and started licking the dead leaves. I switched the hose to mist and sprayed him, while he happily soaked it up, licked more leaves, and showed off his neck frill while he turned green (yes they change color!). Very cute.

I’m currently living in Florida with my parents and there are lots of Anoles that like to hang out on the fences. Whenever I approach them, they either run away... or do this little territorial push-up dance. I find it highly amusing!

AHHHHH ANOLES!!! I love watching them around my apartment complex! I'm so jealous you can get so close!
Tumblr media
shhhhhhh they’re sleeping
Tumblr media
oh! 
Tumblr media
look at this small child, who has grown up next to a giant finger used to gauge their size. But hmmmm what’s that dot on their head?
Tumblr media
That thing that looks like a hole on the baby’s head is a parietal eye [link to wikipedia article], a light-sensing organ that regulates circadian rhythms and hormone cycles. These organs are common in reptiles, amphibians, and some fish.
When I say my yard is full of anoles, I mean... I can go out in my yard any night from April through November and find at least three or four of them lounging in my trees. Sometimes I find cuddle piles of them.
Tumblr media
I love them.

The snoozing tree anoles are back, and this time they are smaller than ever. (Every spring/summer, my yard becomes the nighttime refuge for green anoles who find the Perfect Branch to snooze on. They let me get super close to them and they’ll maybe open an eye to peep on me but they never move, the angels.) June 21, 2018

@give-bug submitted: 2 little green anoles, both color changing from green to brown.
They change to brown due to stress, so to clarify that they're okay-
The first one is in the garage, and they got upset because I put a cereal box in there to make sure they could get out of the bucket.
The second was in our house, and they're upset because I had to handle them a little to put them outside (a scaled up cup-and-paper method).
Not bugs but still very good!!! I don’t see lizards often irl but when I do I am always delighted. Sometimes you gotta stress them a little to keep them safe! They don’t know what’s best for them :\
