none

Females:lightly colored stripe on back(white/light blue/pale green, smaller than males, small dewlaps(if visible),
lightly colored line can be found on young males and NEVER MIX MALES.

Mostly Active During:

N/A

Substrate and Water Needs:

I use bark, its good for humidity, but the feeders get under the bark.
Repti-carpet is good to but has the same problem as bark.
Soil is the best, but you must get soil with out fertilizer and other goodies for plants cause they are NOT GOODIES FOR YOUR REPTILE!!!

Lighting and UVB:

I have a 100watt bulb(uva) for heat and lighting and UVB light for my anoles digestion,vitamin D3 and to help him get the right calcium.

Temperatures and Humidity:

You should get a thermometer and hydrometer and put them in the middle of your cage. Temp. should be at 80* to 85*(day) and 90* at the basking spot and 75* to 80* at night. The humidity should be at 50* to 75* all the time.

Heating and Equipment:

Heat rocks are NOT to be used they can burn your anoles skin and cause death.
I use a over seeing lamp(never put light in side the tank).
Some people use a under tank heating pad.

Caging Provided:

An Anole needs at least 10 gallons of space for each one you have together in the enclosure but think big buy the largest enclosure you can afford for your Anole. you should have Sticks and vines and rocks for the best enclosure possible.

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

The larger and fully grown can eat small crickets and meal worms, but NEVER FEED MEAL WORMS AS A DAILE FEEDER. They have hard exo-skin which can be hard for your anole to poop out. Some anoles will also eat baby food peach, apple, and banana are the most liked of all the baby food.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Anoles need calcium, I dust my feeders 3 times a week to give them the calcium and D3(anoles canít make their own D3)they need to be healthy.

Maintenance:

Their Enclosure needs to be cleaned and disinfected at least 3x per month.

Some Words on this Species:

Hopefully you are reading this before you go out and buy one cause Iíll tell you they, themselves are cheap, but all the supplies and care they need is a lot more than expected for such a small lizard.
