We’ll all give a big hand to whomever provides the best caption for this photo. While you’re ruminating about something clever, notice that this adult male Anolis sagrei, collected from an introduced population in Taiwan and reported on here, is quite fat and sassy (or at least fat). Clearly, the extra appendage did it no harm. Who knows, maybe it even helped! Many anoles with three legs have been collected over the years (more examples always welcome). The existence of five-legged anoles means that it is now statistically possible to examine the relationship between limb number and sprint speed. Stay tuned.
- Anole Annals is written and edited by scientists who study Anolis lizards. Our goal is to disseminate new scientific research, natural history anecdotes, and a wide range of other anole-related information. To find posts on a particular topic, type a key word into the search box.
