I am a young naturalist from Montpellier, in southern France. I am a reasonably serious birder and have a long-lasting interest in primates, but wherever I travel I try to photograph any and all living things I come across.

Can You Help Me Put Names to These Anoles from Yucatan?

Hello everyone. I recently spent four months in the Yucatan Peninsula, doing field work at the Punta Laguna Spider Monkey Sanctuary. While I was there, I observed and photographed quite a few Anolis. I suspect that they are a mix of A. sagrei, rodriguezi, and lemurinus, but I am not able to definitively identify them on my own. I am well aware that it may not be possible to put a name to some or maybe even most of these from photos, but I would be grateful for any insight from the resident experts.

Here are the photos, in no particular order.

This should be A. sagre, correct?

And these yellow dewlaps I would imagine indicate A. rodriguezi?

Thanks very much for any help given.
