Grey-dewlapped Inexperienced Anoles – Anole Annals

Grey-dewlapped Inexperienced Anoles – Anole Annals


from the pages of Floridensis:

Anolis carolinensis, the Carolina inexperienced anole;
Collier county, Florida (15 March 2018).

In Collier county, Florida, most of the Carolina inexperienced anoles sport a reasonably grayish dewlap, that fold of pores and skin below the decrease jaw. Usually, the dewlap for this species is pinkish. Some take into account these regionally-focused “gray-dewlapped” inexperienced anoles to be a definite subspecies (Anolis carolinensis seminolus) separated from the remainder of the Carolina inexperienced anoles, however I’m unsure there’s a lot knowledge to again up an precise subspecies distinction. Appear to me to easily be a phenotypic variation in that exact stretch of south Florida. I additionally discover more-standard pink-dewlapped Carolina greens cohabitating in the identical areas. No matter subspecies designations, I do love coming throughout these incredible variants in Collier county.
