Holy Anole

Can you find the beautiful green creature, hangin’ out, holdin’ onto the branches, swaying in the gentle breeze? This sunbathing camouflage expert is a green anole (\ə-ˈnō-lē\). The second syllable doesn’t rhyme with “hole” like I thought, but with “holy,” which inspired the title for this post.

According to Wikipedia, the green anole (Anolis carolinensis) was the first reptile to have its complete genome sequenced. I’d hide from all that fame too.
