    I saw this in the Barataria Preserve near Marrero, LA in April 2018. Wondering if it's a Crested Anole. Invasive if so. I appreciate your help.

    Nope, regular green anole.
    Many anoles have a dorsal crest the males can raise as part of their displays. It is known as a roach.

    Male Puerto Rican Crested anoles have a permanently raised crest on their tails which is where the name derives.
