There’s a window in the house that doesn’t get opened much and this anole took up residence between the window and the screen. Actually, three or four smaller ones live in there too. At night, they disappear up into the window frame. In the morning they come down and warm up in the sun. This big guy ventures out, coming and going in one corner of the window where the screen is loose.
It’s a green anole (officially called the Carolina anole) despite its brown coloration. Green anoles can turn brown, but brown anoles can’t turn green. Life is unfair.
And, yes, the window and screen look grimy. They have since been washed. The anoles weren’t best pleased, but quickly settled back into their routines once I was done.
