Original Charleston Tours

Fun Things To Do In Charleston - Where To Eat, Drink, Shop, Sleep, Walk, Gawk, Repeat.
One of my favorite sightings while conducting a walking tour in Charleston, SC, is the bright appearance of what many think to be the chameleon due to its vibrant green or brown hue or even another reptile similar in size, the gekko, but it’s really just a harmless lizard known as the Carolina Anole. (“Anole” rhymes with the Italian dessert “cannoli.” ( Say: a-NO-lee). It’s one of those iconic creatures that seems to just fit the landscape somehow – like a slithering woodland fairy who lives deep inside a forest filled with rocky caverns bursting with drooping ferns and Lily of the Valley holding court atop a leafy lily pad in a storybook. Charleston’s gardens and humid climate are the perfect home for these beautiful creatures. Here are a few facts about them: Scientific Name: Anolis carolinensisDistribution/Habitat: Found in Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia, the Carolinas and Florida. Average Size: Adults: 4-8 inches longAverage Life Span: 2-5 yearsDiet: Small insects such as crickets, flies and spiders
