There were lots of very tiny baby anoles around today, as if lots of eggs had just hatched. I scooped up two of them for a few quick photos. That’s a baby girl on the left and a baby boy (slightly larger) on the right.

The baby boy quickly scrambled out of the shallow plastic tub where I’d placed them, but the little girl wandered around. She climbed over a ruler.

And she walked on and around some coins.

Here she is mostly up on top of a dime.

Sitting near some coins, just looking around. Her head and eyes are very big in relation to the rest of her body–she’s very young.

I love her huge eyes.

After her few minutes in the tub I put her in one of the parsley pots, where she quickly disappeared into the greenery.

This photo is almost exactly life-size, as close as I could make it. (Check with a coin of your own.) You can see how very tiny baby anoles really are!
