I love your proposal. I have a couple of questions for you. Is it known that the red disk will cause stress to the anole (previous studies)? Would it be of interest to do a color examination while the anoles are sleeping. My anole is almost always brown when sleeping (at least in the morning before heat lamp turns on). I am not suggesting that you do this, as your design is in place, but what about the ambient temperature's effect on color? This would be a pretty easy, reproducible study to do, if it is not already known. Thanks for your efforts on this interesting project.
