My mom lives northeast of the Orlando area and as I am sitting here at her house, outside, I am looking at the most fascinating Anole I've seen.

The Puerto Rican Crested Anole is super cool looking. I managed to convince the obvious Alpha Male that lives in her screen room to come onto my hand for a short visit but he ran off before getting a picture.

I really want to get a few of these and take them back to Texas. I wouldn't do this is they were a native species, but everything I've read said they came off of Boats coming from Puerto Rico.

Plan is that I am thinking of making a vertical tank with full spectrum lighting and a bonsai'd ficus tree and some other plants. Seems like they'd like it and I could re-create most of where they're living now.

Anyone have any thoughts?
