Well I picked up a male anole for me three females. However he is not going to get to be with them for awhile yet, as I still want to give my females a nice long break from the males of their species, and watching the interactions of an all female anole group are interesting to say the least. The male is in a 10 gallon aquarium that I had set up for babies but since all the eggs are either duds or get eaten, getting babies is not likely anymore. While at the pet store I watched him and the dominant male, who was at least one half the size of this male(It was huge) The dominant male was doing rounds and would approach the other males, it was amazing to watch the other submit to him by turning dark brown and trying to make themselves look smaller. So here are some pics. Of him in his nice new bachelor pad. :) It will also be cool to watch the behavior changes in this male as he finds out he is now the master of his own domain.

Here are some pics of him in his travel case, he is a little larger than my females, so he is a juvi.

Even so he is a lot more "cocky" than the females are.

A nice close up of the head.

Here you can see he has quite a bit of blue coloration on him, this guy may turn out to be a rather pretty male when he grows larger and matures.

It was the Petsmart off lyndale (The one right next to Best Buy and Don Pablos.) There is also a male that actually has a thick white stripe down his back too, but he was also kinda funny looking so I avoided him. I hope that Dominant male is still there I am sure that would sell fast. (He big pretty and healthy.)
