Now that you know how to pronounce it,
please stop calling them Chameleons. Thanks.

Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis)

Florida was once teeming with Green Anoles. They still are
very common, but in distured areas, have been replaced by
the far more aggressive Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei sagrei),
accidentally introduced from Cuba.

Hence, Green Anoles are a indicator of a 'healthier' ecosystem.
From personal observations, the lower diversity of plant and
insect specie (either exotic or native) in a given area,
the higher the number of resident Brown Anoles.

So if you have an abundance of Green Anoles in your landscape,
rejoice. If the Brown Anole population is high, please plant more.

And stop using so many damn chemicals.
