Baby alert! Five green anoles have hatched in our Seven Rivers gallery. These interesting lizards, native to North Carolina, have the ability to change their coloration through a range of greens and browns. Our animal husbandry team is providing all of the anoles with excellent care, monitoring the progress and health of each hatchling.
