Green anole approaching
Anoles and geckos are common everywhere around here. Where geckos have a softer, often goofy look to them, the larger anoles seem to me much more ‘reptilian.’ I don’t picture geckos as descendants of dinosaurs, but anoles? Definitely.
This photo is what I mean, both in the anole’s appearance and its pose, echoing a mighty dinosaur clumping through prehistoric forest.
