    Dear Oldtimer
    Please forgive the Slang on my part.
    Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis) A small reptile (lizard) that shifts it's colors depending on it's environment. There are images of them in the hive, on the web-site I believe. The Green Anoles share the hive with the bees. It is a beautiful symbiotic relationship. The Reptiles live in the hive in winter and stay warm. They also consume hive beetles and moths. They sit at the entrance of the hive like little sentinels, waiting for intruders.

    Oh yes I saw the lizards, they add quite a bit of interest to the appearance of the hive.

    I do suspect they might eat a few bees though!
    44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
