Infraspecies

Invasive Species

The Cuban green anole, Anolis porcatus is thought to have been unintentionally introduced to the Domincan Republic. There have been signs of competition with the native A. chlorocyanus. While A. porcatus is most likely to displace A. chlorocyanus from disturbed or urban environments where it is most successful, it is thought that A. chlorocyanus will be able to persist in more complex, natural environments.
