Sticky Feet

Uploaded: June 11, 2015 06:03:14 | Entered: September 26, 2018 05:58:57


Thanks to the adhesive toe pads on their tiny feet, anoles can climb smooth surfaces where claws can't be used. Found this fellow "hanging out" and waiting for his next meal to come along at Zilker Botanical in Austin.

Enjoy your day!
