    I’ve seen adult male sagrei conmuse cicadas (the big, hard-bodied ones) in Florida. In one instance, the cicada had probably recently emerged and was still soft, but in another instance the cicada appeared to be fully mature with a hard exoskeleton (it was able to alarm call, which drew my attention to the lizard). It looked impossible and took forever, but somehow the anole managed to get it down. In a third instance I was again alerted to the interaction by the cicada’s alarm call, but the cicada eventually escaped, possibly because I disturbed the anole with my approach.
