Photos: Green Anole Eating Bug

This was the highlight of my photo-taking episode of the green lizard, as I did some gardening this weekend . . . photos of him eating a bug.

I’m glad I got these shots.green lizard eating buggreen lizard eating bugI read that green anoles function well as a native pest control, as they will eat spiders, cockroaches, and other bugs.green lizard eating bug green lizard eating bugThe final swallow. green lizard eating bug

I read that most green anoles will run from humans when possible, but some are aggressive enough to bite an imposing hand. When caught by a person, they will tend to bite if agitated and require some effort to remove from skin. They very infrequently draw blood or cause injury.green lizard green lizard
