Karlos Ross the bird guide at Holguin posted some lovely pictures of these two male Cuban Coast Anoles Anolis jubar that he found fighting in his yard at Holguin. They are similar to Anolis sagrei but have a different dewlap pattern with more yellow at the base. I haven't yet figured why we sometimes see them commonly at Guardalavaca and at other times they seem absent. In threat posture they raise the crest along the neck and back but the jagged crest along the tail is fixed. Karlos says he watched them fighting ferociously for 23 minutes before the local male drove off the intruder. Thank you Karlos.
