Anole ID Assistance

Afternoon to all, I thought I would introduce myself with a few photos to get some identification clarification. The first one was sent by a friend (Tanis Birch) who is traveling in Belize (Punta Gorda). I have not been to Belize and have limited experience with anoles but my best guess was Anolis sagrei. Are there any similar looking anoles which I am not taking into consideration? Any thoughts?

    It certainly does look like A. sagrei, and I know they have been reported at certain coastal localities in Belize.

  2. It certainly does appear as a A. Sagrei commonly known as the Cuban Brown Anole. Hope that helps. For more information the best resource is The Reptile Database of which I forget the actual web address. Apologies.

    This individual was in south Florida, again my assumption was that it was a juvenile A. sagrei.

    I agree. Looks like sagrei, although those toes are quite long and slender.
