Chow Time for Anolis Distichus Part Deux

Yesterday I posted a short video of the Hispaniolan trunk anole (Anolis distichus) feeding on ants and noted that this species eats lots of social insects.  Like most anoles, however, A. distichus is also a fairly opportunistic feeder that will eat more or less whatever it can fit in its mouth.  I illustrate the diversity of this species’ diet with today’s photos of predation on an orthopteran and a curculionid beetle (both photographs were taken in situ in the Dominican Republic).
