Hispaniola trunk anoles (a.k.a. the distichus series) tend to specialize on social insects. The little bugger in this video was chowing down on ants when we filmed him last summer in the Dominican Republic. You’ll see him flash his dewlap after picking off a few ants; such post-feeding displays are common in A. distichus.
