Come to Louisiana--where lizards aren't visitors to your house, they're residents!

Anole? American cameleon. Cool all we get around here are aligator skinks.

Geckos find their way into most Hawaiian houses, to make their odd ticking chirp (mostly good), eat the insects (good), and defecate (not so good, particularly to books). They rather resemble your friend there.

How's the froglet?

The frog has departed. We're not sure when it left, but it hasn't been seen for a couple of months, at least.

I think Anole is correct. Males can also inflate the sack under the chin, they change between brown (and colorful green) depending on need for camouflage. Totally harmless - very common (I lived in Baton Rouge about 8 years!)
