Carolina Anole (lizard) – Identification

Q: This little alligator walked in my front door like he owned the place, then died. What is it?

A: It’s a Carolina anole, a type of lizard. They are harmless to humans – only to the insects they eat. I’m not sure why your visitor came indoors. Perhaps it was injured or starving or cold.

In any case, lay it to rest in peace and keep your door closed!
