These anoles were plentiful on tree trunks and broken branches at Carara. They were nicer about posing for my camera than many of the anole species I encountered.

Some authorities put most of the Central and South American anole species (as opposed to the U.S./Caribbean ones) into the genus Norops. This might become the standard soon, but for now there are still many authorities using "Anolis". Also, some authorities consider A. intermedius a synonym for A. laeviventris. Thanks to Axel Fläschendräger for helping to identify this anole.
