Anoles for Bug Control in Florida Gardens

Both our increasingly rare native Green Anole (common when I was a teen in Tampa in the 60s) and the Cuban Brown Anole (which I gather arrived on banana boats) displacing it render extremely valuable control of small bodied insects in Florida gardens. At this time of year the tiny eggs, buried in loose soil and mulch when laid, are hatching now, and adorable TEENSY baby anoles are a common site. Here are some photos of both species, eggs, and Brown Anoles making more Brown Anoles.
