I walked over to the gate this afternoon and came across these two big male anoles confronting each other.

A moment later they charged at each other, and ended up grabbing each other over the top of the piece of metal overhead. The anole on the left seems to be dangling while the one on the right has his back feet on the gate.

Still pulling at each other over the metal bar. The guy on the left looks like he’s getting his footing here.

Jaws locked, continuing to battle.

The anole on the right is either trying to pull the other guy up, or he’s getting pulled down off the bar.

He seems to be about to land on his head here, but they never let go of each other.

And finally the anole on the left yanked the anole on the right down off the bar.

They turned and fought face to face for a couple of minutes.

Up and down the fence post a couple of times, and finally they went off in opposite directions.
