Leach's anole (Anolis leachii) is a species of anole lizard that is native to Antigua and Barbuda, an island-nation in the Caribbean Lesser Antilles, where it can be found on both main islands. It has also been introduced to Bermuda.

A relatively large anole species, it coexists with the smaller anoles A. wattsi on Antigua, and A. forresti on Barbuda.
