Anole Knight history

The Knight Anole is native to Cuba. Though since their introduction they are also fairly common in Southeastern Florida in the United States as well. The preferred natural habitat of the Knight Anole is one that is humid and warm. They are commonly seen in heavily forested areas that block out direct sunlight, but maintain high temperatures. Though some theorize that the Knight Anole's common name is derived from its facial features, it may be the case that the common name "Knight" is derived from the Latin species name "equestris" which is derived from "equester" a latin word for knights. This may be due to the yellow or sometimes white high-lights that can be seen between the body scales on most specimens and resemble plates of armor.
