Anolis maynardi (Maynard's Anole)

Invasive Species

Little is known about the biology of Maynard's anole (Anolis maynardi). Most easily identified from its long, slender head, it has been introduced to Cayman Brac from Little Cayman, possibly through commodity transport routes; here it has the potential to compete with the endemic Cayman Brac brown anole, Norops sagrei luteosignifer.
