Anolis Sagrei Occurs on Roatan

Since my previous posts on Roatanian anoles, it’s come to my attention that A. sagrei has not been sighted on Roatan in quite a long time, and in fact some believe that it was never there at all. The photo to the left should dispel any such rumors. It certainly isn’t common–from my very brief time there–but it’s present. Said to be introduced in McCranie et al.’s book on Bay Islands herps.
