    FarmerDave, those bigguns are Cuban Anoles and yeah they are nasty.

    My guess is that your anole was an egg in a pot when it was shipped (can look like perlite) and now you have the end result.

    If it is living in conditions where you won't let it go below 50 it should be ok. Otherwise, go buy a 5 gallon tank and have a pet anole!

    cut it up and feed it to your plants!

    .....Just Kidding!

    Definitly an Anole!
    When my brother and I were kids, we used to keep them as pets in terrariums, my dad would always find them at his gardening Job and bring them home! I rember our last Anole, it crawled under its electrically heated rock one night, and then was crushed to death

    How sad.

    Its a pretty lil' thing. If you leave him in your greenhouse he might escape outside and then he'll freeze. Better to keep him IN something or send him to Ozzy or someone in a warmer area.

    Love the blue around his eyes.

    Do you really not have ANY lizards in Michigan??

    Unless you plant to feed it in the greenhouse, it will probably starve over the winter, and has been said, escape into the cold harsh Michigan winter is always a possibility. BTW, Cuban anoles are always a ahde of brown, Carolina anoles can change color between green and brown.

    Sorry, The previous post should say "plan to feed it" - they are carnivores and I doubt there are enough insects in the greenhouse to feed it all winter.

    Sure that is a green anole? Never seen one with a stripe like that.

    A lot of people seem to be getting these in with their plants. Too bad nothings happened to me yet.
