Knight Anole

Knight Anoles are native to Cuba and are being seen more frequently throughout South Florida. They are larger than the green and brown anoles and can reach 13 to 20 inches in length. They have small, sharp teeth and are likely to stand their ground when they perceive a threat. Their bite isn't dangerous but can be painful, to get one to release its bite just put it back on the ground.

It feeds by day as well as by night using its stout bill for feeding on hard-shelled crustaceans.
