I can’t believe I have captured a green anole blew a “pink balloon” again. When I was in Chapel Hill, NC, several years ago, I was lucky to take few pictures of a Carolina Anole puffed up its dewlap. The pinkish throat pouch is puffed up when a male anole tries to attract a mate or when it tries to defend its territory. I was able to use the photos and wrote a short story for China Nature Magazine. Once again, here in Hawaii, I am lucky enough to witness another anole trying to defending his territory.
