I had a Carolina Anole lizard on my screened porch for two days and he appeared to be searching for a way out. He also was not too active and I was afraid he was trapped on the porch with no food or moisture. I decided to see if I could catch him. He was fairly easy to get my hand over him and then I decided to show him to my wife. I opened my hand a little and he latched on to the inside of my finger. My first lizard bite. He clamped down with an amazing amount of pressure, was on the edge of being slightly painful. He also would not let go. I placed him outside and he turned loose and scooted. I don't believe they have much teeth as it didn't break the skin.

I remember my first small lizard bite. It was pretty startling and then kind of funny thinking about the sheer difference in size of me and him. Anyways, glad you could help him out =D
