Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about the Beautiful Anolis smaragdinus


The Catalogue of American Amphibians and Reptiles, produced by the Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles, are “Loose-leaf accounts of taxa (measuring 8.5 x 11 inches) prepared by specialists, including synonymy, definition, description, distribution map, and comprehensive list of literature for each taxon. Covers amphibians and Reptiles of the entire Western Hemisphere. Individual accounts are not sold separately, except where indicated.”

CAAR entries are now freely available online; there are 32 anole species accounts. The latest is by Les and Powell and is a very nice CAAR entry for the lovely Anolis smaragdinus.
