Another Day, Another Anole

This little one was hanging out on the inside of the screen door yesterday. You can see that it has already lost part of its tail and grown it back again. It looks like the new growth doesn’t have the same ability to change color as the rest of the Anole. The tail seems to want to stay a kind of gray color while the rest is mostly green.

Both of the anoles I have posted pictures of here in the last few days have a stripe of mottled black and tan down their backs. I don’t remember noticing that kind of coloration before. I just realized that is probably camouflage for the mottled lighting created by the screen on the door.
