Brown Anole Trumps Green Anole!

Brown Anole, Anolis sagrei, doing its mating display on the wall at Gordon Biersch at the Aloha Tower in Honolulu. Brown Anoles are a Carribean species that have established themselves throughout the SE U.S. and are currently spreading rapidly throughout Hawaii. They are known to compete for the same food and also prey on the young of green/American Anoles, which they are largely displacing.
