An update from Southern Pines

Look who decided to join us at Gum Swamp today! It's a Matt-lizard holding a carolina anole.

We saw and marked 3 individuals today, including one female and two males. Matt (my husband) spotted the female! What a natural; he should consider making more visits to Southern Pines in the future! With the goal of trying to understand more about green anole social interactions (and specifically, mating behavior), having Matt's help with spotting the locals was much appreciated. Thanks Matt!

And look who was watching us not too far away...

  1. Hunting for lizards is a fabulous way to spend a weekend! Thanks for showing me the ropes (and the snakes, and the pines). Maybe next time I'll learn some of your lizard-lassoing skills.
