Jamaican Anole

About the Jamaican Anole

The Jamaican Anole is the most frequently seen of Bermuda’s lizards. The male can reach up to 8 inches long, with a bluish green body, blue hind legs and a purple tail - but they change colour rapidly and may also be dark brown, almost black. The male Jamaican Anole also has a bright orange extendable throat fan called a dewlap.

The female is 4-5 inches long and is greenish grey or light grey. Anoles usually eat insects, nectar and certain types of fruits.

Some Jamaican Anoles can have a beautiful diamond pattern on their back, similar to some snakes. They are a type of Iguana, but smaller than you may expect!
