Anole displays can get pretty intense. My favorite feature of a really vigorous display is the lingual extension, a move that reminds me of Michael Jordan driving the lane for a dunk. Although I’ve illustrated this phenomenon with a photo of Anolis distichus, I’ve seen many species of anoles using this move during really intense displays. I’ll try to post more photos in the coming weeks.
