This afternoon I came across a big male brown anole with a pretty big bug in his mouth. It looked like a palmetto bug.

The anole didn’t seem to mind when I moved in closer with the camera.

The bug was a big mouthful for him, and he kept turning his head to rub it against the concrete–trying to either break off pieces of the bug, or cram it all into his mouth.

That bug had some prickly looking legs.

Finally he managed to swallow it all down.
