Sub Category:

Anoles

 Care Sheet Submitted By:

Scaly-Man

Years Experience:

3 to 5 Years

Species:

Wild Caught Green Anoles

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

Captive anoles, but it sticks to facts mainly about wild anoles.

Sexing and Characteristics:

Anoles are usually green but can turn brownish for mood and temperature change.

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

Wild anoles almost never accept water in a store bought dish. So how do you get them to drink? Simple, mist down leaves in the cage for it to lick up.
Substrate isnít need much, they spend most of the time in foliage.

Lighting and UVB:

They need some kind of lighted heat source. UVB is also a good lighting to have with it.

Temperatures and Humidity:

Temperatures should be very warm, but it can very to where you found the anole. There should be a good amount of humidity in the cage. Misting the cage doesnít only contribute to drinking water but also humidity.

Heating and Equipment:

HEAT ROCKS WILL BURN YOUR LIZARDS. They should be basking in a heat lamp.

Caging Provided:

A 10 gallon tank can hold a couple since they are tiny. The more the bigger tank. There should be an abundance of twigs with leaves suitable for climbing inside. I use ones from the plant I got the anole at.

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

Wild anoles eat many insects, but the ones I catch are attracted to insects such as crickets and grasshoppers.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

You may be able to pick up anole calcium dust at your local pet store, but it is not mandatory for a wild anole, but it will help them spot crickets you dust it on.

Maintenance:

You should clean up the poo in its cage daily or switch really fudged up branches.

Some Words on this Species:

Actually, I think captive anoles much easier to take care of, although. You can try to care for a wild anole, but this info is very general, so youíll need more research specific info on wild anoles. I think most people should just buck up and buy one at a store, but itís your choice.
