This small reptile is very common around Yatama Ecolodge, even around the refuge. I saw individuals in many areas of the reserve, both during the day and at night hikes. We even found one that was molting its skin right on top of a leaf. Per the description of the Reptiles of Costa Rica: A Field Guide book by Twan Leenders, this is the most common anole in the country, although I certainly haven’t paid attention before if I have seen them previous to my visits to Yatama.
