Martinique’s anole is an incredible species on an incredible island. While I was doing a quick research for this post I found out that Martinique is actually lots of little islands joined together by a volcanic eruption zillions (exact number yet to be found) of years ago. So? (says the bored Naturalist) So, (says the more enthusiastic one) that is probably the reason why we can find such different kinds of anolis on the island; even today they haven’t mixed enough to become of one uniform variety – they are still separable by DNA and skin patterns. Incredible!
All the photos in this post are of the same species but different subspecies.
