Bronze Anole

The Bronze Anole (Anolis aeneus) is a species of anole lizard that is found in the Caribbean Lesser Antilles and South America. It is distributed on Grenada and throughout the Grenadines islands, and it has been introduced to Trinidad. It can also be found in Guyana on the mainland.

Males reach a length of 77 mm snout-to-vent. Its dorsal surface color is either pale gray, olive, or chocolate-brown, and it is marked with a pattern of mottling or fine speckles. Its ventral surface is pale, often with dark mottling along the sides. Its dewlap is white or dull green, with a yellow or orange spot near its front edge. Females are brown, with a mid-dorsal stripe or ladder-like marking, and a light flank stripe.

It has been the focus of numerous studies of the behavior and ecological strategies employed by Anolis species.
