Brown Anole, Kauai

  1. I’ve always wanted to go to kaui. Have freinds there wanted to go fishing there too. How’s the herping there? Any venomous things there

  2. This fancy little guy is a Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei) and he is chillin' in the sun displaying his bright orange dewlap. He pops this little fan out during courtship or while guarding his territory. Unfortunately Brown Anoles are an invasive species in Hawaii; first thought to have arrived sometime in the 1980's or 90's they have spread quickly. Interesting fact: the only native reptiles to Hawaii are sea turtles!
