The Redonda Anole (Anolis nubilis) is a species of anole lizard that is endemic to the small, uninhabited island of Redonda, part of Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean Lesser Antilles.

It is various shades of gray all over, occasionally with a yellowish tint around its eye. Females have subtle striping on their back near their hindlimbs, and a stripe on each flank. As Redonda is almost entirely treeless, the Redonda Anole spends most of its time on the ground and seeks shade under large rocks.
