The green anole (also known as the Carolina or red-throated anole) is a small arboreal lizard found primarily in the southeastern US and Caribbean. It is sometimes called the American chameleon because it can change color from its usual emerald green to brown. Many lizards are capable of this trick, however, and anoles are not true chameleons, typically only changing color in response to stress or cold.
