Anole eating anole!
Today we had another first for the Lizard Project. While on island H capturing lizards, we found a green anole eating a brown anole. While other people had previously observed this happening, we had not seen this on our islands, until today.
As I was looking for lizards, some rustling on a nearby palm frond got my attention. Expecting it to be a lizard to noose, I crouched down ready to capture it. Thats when I found an adult green anole munching on a hatchling brown anole. The brown anole was still alive and struggling, but looked like the struggle was going to be futile. This was an exciting find for us.
