Anoles (top photo) seem much more intimidating to me than Geckos (bottom photo). I guess it is due to a combination of their aggressive attitude, claws and dragon-like appearance. With Geckos all I can think of is a wise-cracking insurance spokesman.
I'm a guy who likes to get out into the ocean several times each week and interact with the creatures I encounter there. I often swim with dolphins, sharks, rays, and whales. Check out my photos on my website: www.TropicalLight.com
