The green anole is a lizard belonging to the Polychrotidae family. This insectivorous and herbivorous animal is native to North America. Many people keep it as a pet because of its ability to change color which is unique for this type of lizard.

The green anole genome has 18 chromosomes containing 1.8 Gb with 18,000 protein-coding genes. The reference proteome is derived from the genome sequence published in 2011.
