Invasive Species

St. Vincent's bush anole, Anolis trinitatis has been introduced and established on Trinidad since the early 1800's along with the similar and also introduced bronze anole A. aeneus. Anolis trinitatis is less widespread and common than A. aeneus. While this was once thought to be due to competition and hybridisation, it is now thought to be due to the requirement of A. trinitatis for well-vegetated habitat and increasing levels of urban development.
