Splotchy Green Anole

Karen Cusick, proprietor of Daffodil’s Photo Blog, watched this green anole turn from green to brown. Or mostly brown. I’ve seen this sometimes myself. Anyone know what’s going on here? Seen it in other green anoles?

    1. I’ve seen several like this in the past few years here in Manvel, Texas. Not sure if it’s related to colder days as I read in another post but that’s possible. I did see one about a week ago when it was pretty chilly.
