Anatoli the Anole
My husband rescued a baby Carolina Anole (Anolis carolinensis, a.k.a. Green Anole) from certain death. He recovered nicely, and is now living in Geckie's old cage.
He's much more swift and agile than Geckie, and unlike a leopard gecko, he can cling to the glass sides of the aquarium.
We named him Anatoli. Yes, that's Anatoli the Anole, in keeping with our ludicrously juvenile reptile-naming scheme.
See FC's recent post on Mood Lizards for a great series of pictures of a Green Anole changing colors.
