Anoles are lizards that live in tropical areas from the United States to South America. They have also been widely introduced to places like Hawaii

Anoles have the ability to change colors and are sometimes called "chameleons" though true chameleons only live in Africa. Anoles feed on insects and lay eggs.

Anoles are popular in the pet trade.

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
