We have their siblings, the carolina anoles, around these parts. Their dance isn't as energetic or elaborate, but they like to show their "penny" just as enthusiastically.
When I was a kid, we would catch them and get them to bite our earlobes so we could leave them hanging there and freak the girls out. My older cousin Phillip would let them clamp onto his nostrils and freak EVERYONE out.
They're being displaced in Florida by the larger cuban anoles.
White Trash Party - 2012-02-16 YES I remember these as a kid when I used to live in Florida. I think every kid that grew up with these around would catch them. Some of the bigger ones bit HARD and could draw blood tho. The baby ones are freaking adorable at least.
