Green Anole

photo-13

This is a picture of a couple green anoles that I took on Queens’ campus around 12:00pm. These two were probably out caching some sun-rays, enjoying the nice weather.

Taxonomy:
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Reptilia
Order: Squamata
Family: Polychrotidae

Fun Fact!
According to Nature Works, the green anole is also referred to as the American chameleon, although it is not a true chameleon. It is able to change colors based on temperature, humidity, health, and mood.
