A chance encounter

Today while admiring the new red bronze growth on my grumichama, my eye caught a very fast movement. I was astounded to see this beautiful green lizard in the picture catching a smaller brown lizard and chomping down on it. The large green lizard is most probably a Knight Anole (Anolis equestris), the prey is probably a Brown Anole, (Anolis sagrei). Both are introduced species. I found this information at Florida and Georgia Anoles


  1. Welcome to blotanical. I thought that was a lizard catching a lizard. Fascinating.

  2. Yes, that was my first reaction, whats going on, one lizard eating another! I had to run inside, grab the camera and snap that picture !
