This green anole, (Anolis carolinensis) does not look green at all as he - or she- relaxes on a basketflower leaf. Even watching me, he is unconcerned, legs outstretched, all comfy. He knows I don't eat the lizards in my yard, I suppose. But suddenly my dog passes under his leaf. Presto! Change-o! The anole switches his color from brown to green, to hide from the canine predator.
