Anolis Carolinensis Named “Invasive Species Of The Week”

The Invasive Species Specialist Group, a Species Survival Commission (SSC) of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), recently gave the weekly top honor to our favorite greenie. We love ’em here in the U.S., but as we’ve documented many times, they can be a problem elsewhere. A pdf of the picture above is available at the ISSG site.
