Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis)

 Being outdoors here on our own property, you almost daily can observe our garden critters.
Here below is the Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis) ←click link and it is about 5-8 inches long or 12-20 cm.
Nicely basking in the sun on an agave leaf!
They can either be green or brown, depending on environmental conditions.
Our Green Anoles are rather at ease with us...
They even made love in our presence!

Do you have any lizards in your garden?

    1. Cara Olga,
      Qui sono anche spesso brunastri, possono adattarsi all'ambiente circostante.
      Abbracci,

  2. Never seen any lizards in our garden. They are good at eating many insects.

    God bless.

      Yes, that is what they do, catching flies, mosquitoes and such.

      These inside our greenhouse were indeed pretty green but they can adapt to their surroundings.
      Tiggy-Tiger girl has caught many baby lizard... she chases them into the gutter of our front patio. Often I've rescued them!

    Blessings!

      Guess they knew our voices as we worked in or near the greenhouse.
      It was unique to see them like this!

  5. Hello Mariette, Those green lizards ate the cute American kind. I don't know what you saw in Indonesia, but here there are fat brown lizards (bihu) that crawl around inside on the walls and ceiling, make a lot of noise at night, and are rather unsanitary. I wish I knew how to get rid of them! Some have suggested cats, and while I love your cats through your blog, I don't want pets of my own, especially as I usually travel to the U.S. for several months each year and could not take proper care of them.

    1. Dearest. Jim,
      Yes, the little green or brown lizards are cute and here they only are outside.
      In Indonesia we had lots of cicak inside and outside, they were small. The big fat Tokay Gecko I've seen also in Indonesia and heard them; very noisy!
      We never had them inside our homes in Indonesia but have observed them on ceilings of outdoor eateries and such where they loved circling around the light. People joked that they love to fall into the soup... haha. And they can be very loud.
      Don't know if cats would like to catch them. But for you having to travel so often it is no option indeed.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  6. OMG - just opened up here and find we both posted on our lizards today, how cute is that! Mariette - we must think alike, haha!!!! I think mine is also an Anole - same size, and colors which change.

    Here's to the weekend - garden visitors are busy this time of year, humans not so much!
    Hugs - Mary

    1. Dearest Mary,
      That is funny indeed! Colors indeed can adapt to their surroundings and most likely they are Anole. Yesterday, while driving back and forth to Atlanta, we passed a Geico car with their cute green Anole on the side! Love those commercials.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  8. So schön, sie bei Dir zu sehen, liebe Mariette. Wir haben leider keine Eidechsen im Garten, es ist wohl nicht so warm und sonnig hier in Ostfriesland. Auch hat die Agave eine imposante Größe.

    1. Liebe Traudi,
      Denke schon das die Eidechsen bei euch im allgemeinen selten sind.
      Die Agave wurde zu groß und konnte nicht mehr durch die Tür vom kleinen Gewächshaus... Leider überleben sie keinen Frost.
      Liebe Grüße,
      Mariette

      True, they are very rare in northern Europe. This one can adapt its color to the surroundings.

  10. Además del placer, que siempre supone pasear por él, está la satisfacción de que todas las plantas que hay son fruto de vuvuestro trabajo.

    1. Querida Antónia,
      Ciertamente hemos disfrutado de todas nuestras plantas y cuidándolas durante los meses fríos dentro del invernadero. A otras criaturas también les encantó el invernadero.
      Abrazos,
