Hispaniolan Stout Anole (Anolis cybotes cybotes)
Here's another one in the midst of shedding its skin. Only the male large-heads have the big heads. The females are quite a bit smaller and proportioned more like other anole species.

Hispaniolan Stout Anole (Anolis cybotes cybotes)
Of the five anole species I saw at Casa de Campo, the large-headed anoles were by far the least wary of humans. This one hung out on the trellis of our veranda the entire week or so we were there, even after I caught it a couple of times for a closer look.
