Brown Anole (Anolis sagrei)

In the southeast, found primarily throughout FL into southern GA, the Brown Anole is native to Cuba & the Bahamas. David Smith and Jeff Beane have very recently (2008) reported this taxon in extreme southeastern North Carolina. Most likely these individuals were inadvertantly introduced on nursery stock of palm trees. The NC Museum of Natural Sciences is monitoring the situation and we're hoping this exotic invasive does not become established from these recently sighted individuals.
