My name is John Phillips. I am an undergraduate in Kirsten Nicholson’s lab at Central Michigan. Kirsten and I were discussing some interesting behavior I observed by A. laeviventris and A. cupreus during our Nicaragua trip last summer. Multiple individuals upon capture appeared to ‘play dead’ until I stopped holding them securely, whence they suddenly sprang to life and escaped. Kirsten thought you may know of any related instances of such behavior in anoles, and she has encouraged me to write this observation up in Herp Review so I was wondering if anyone knew of related instances in other anoles. If so, could you email me at: email@example.com?
