The green anole is one of the most commonly encountered lizards in South Carolina, and is often incorrectly referred to as a chameleon due to its ability to change color from green to brown. Spotted this anole on the boardwalk of Audubon Center at Beidler Forest, South Carolina.

The Galapagos land iguana is a species of lizard and grows to a length of three to five feet with a body weight of up to twenty-five pounds, depending upon which island they are from. Being cold-blooded, they absorb heat from the sun by basking on volcanic rock, and at night sleep in burrows to conserve their body heat.
