Abstract

Two species of lizards, Anolis cristatellus and Anolis stratulus, both occupying tree trunks in open, park-like situations at Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, were compared in the field with respect to approach distances and effectiveness of camouflage. A. stratulus was more effectively concealed than A. cristatellus and had much shorter approach distances.
