Found in swamp near bridge; about 2.5 inches long. Unfortunately, I didn't realize how rare this was until I looked at the photos hours later (it was getting dark but I would have tried for better photos). Much more striped and rosy colored sides than expected. Released unharmed back into swamp. First Virginia iNat record and fourth global (third individual) iNat record.

First likely naturally occurring VA record. After talking with Ned Brinkley on Sunday, I had many questions. He said back in the 80’s they saw Green Anoles all over False Cape SP. I figured that means they must’ve been at Back Bay and could possibly still be there. So, I decided to check out the Coastal Live Oak forest to see if I could and lo and behold... Found one on the boardwalk. It was too hot to look much longer, but I feel there should have been reports of these throughout the years... This old male had several battle scars from fighting, so he is probably not alone. Only 13 miles from a known NC population. Released after photographed.
