Thee are four different species of Anole Lizard to be found in the Yucatan. This fellow was about four inches long, mostly tail, but I don’t know to which of the four species he belongs to.
What he does have is an orange throat pouch that he puffs up. I’m not sure why, but it will more than likely be to do with sex.
Americans often call anolis (for that is the plural) chameleons, because they have the ability to change colour, but true chameleons are only found in sub-Saharan Africa and a few parts of Asia and Mediterranean Europe.
This fellow was in the reception area of the Grand Palladium and White Sands Resort somehow avoiding becoming lunch for the feral cats.
