Anole (Anolis pogus)

Anolis pogus is smaller than its relative Anolis gingivinus and is typically found in highland areas amongst ground cover, rather than on trees. Aside from the much smaller size, telltale identifiers include the turquoise or green patch around the eye and the absence of the white stripe on the side. The maximum length, excluding tail, is approximately 6 cm. It seems that Anolis pogus lives only on St. Martin, except a small population on an islet near Anguilla that was introduced as part of a scientific experiment about how multiple species of anole share resources.
