The Puerto Rican crested anole (anolis cristatellus) is found throughout Puerto Rico and has also been introduced to Hispaniola, Dominica and Florida. Their color ranges from brownish/red to dark black or light gray.
|There were lots of crested anoles in the vines next to the parking lot of our hotel in Levittown, Puerto Rico.|
|A reddish color stands out on this anole as it catches some direct sun.|
Males have a bright yellow/orange dewlap and both males and females have a crest along the tail. They spend most of their time perched on tree trunks.
|I caught this crested anole in El Yunque NF near the Yokahu Lighthouse.|
