The Green Anole is the only anole species native to the U.S. and is not as common as in the past. They are mistakenly called chameleons because they change from green to brown to blend with the environment. Green Anoles are active and commonly seen often basking in plants waiting to snag an insect or chase off another anole. They are good to have around as they eat a wide variety of insects, spiders, and other invertebrates. My observation indicates they frequently can be found in one spot day after day. My unscientific observations put these anoles as the second most common anole in Florida since it appears that the non-native brown anole is displacing the green anole.
