Photos: Sleeping Anole

Today’s photos show a Jamaican anole lizard (Anolis grahami) asleep on a leaf of our orchid plant. It sleeps there every night.anole lizard asleep on orchid leafI read that some lizards are known to sleep on the ground, while others sleep clinging to tree limbs off the ground. This one likes the comfort of a firm leaf.anole lizard asleep on orchid leafAlthough partially exposed, this anole lizard seems comfortable sleeping where we can see it; that hole at the side of its head, is its ear. anole lizard asleep on orchid leafIt is a light sleeper however, and is now wide awake and alert, and ready to dash to safety.anole lizard awaken on orchid leaf
