Resumen

We briefly describe the diet of six species of lizards of the genus Anolis in the Yasuní National Park, located in the western part of the Amazon Rainforest. A total of 241 prey items found in the stomachs of the lizards were identified. We noted that Aranea and Hymenoptera were the most frequent diet categories used by the lizard community. In terms of prey volume, Hemiptera and insect larvae were the most representative prey. The description of the diet of Anolis provided by this study can be further combined with information related to their natural history, thus shedding light on ecological mechanisms that influence adaptation.
