Abstract: 

The stomach contents of 10 adult individuals of each of three anole species (Anolis gundlachi, A. evermanni, and A. stratulus) were collected to determine the number, type, and volume of prey consumed following Hurricane Hugo.

Methods: 

Ten adult lizards of each of the three common species (see Abstract) were collected between 1200 and 1600 hours and killed immediately. Stomach were removed and their contents placed in 70% EtOH. Data recorded for each species included: date and time of capture, sex/age, SVL, weight, and comments (see variables descriptions under Mark and Resight Studies). Insects were identified under a dissecting scope and measured using an ocular micrometer.
