Sub Category:

Anoles

 Care Sheet Submitted By:

DG499

Years Experience:

Under 1 Year

Species:

Green Anole

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

none

Sexing and Characteristics:

The females have little to no dewlap, and are smaller than the males, they have a white stripe running down their back. Males are bigger than the females and tend to be more aggressive.

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

I use "Jungle Bed", but you can also use "Bed-a-Beast" or "Reptibark". Do not use calcium sand, it has way too high of a risk for impaction. Use a shallow water dish from your local pet store, have your water dish big enough for your anole to fit in.

Lighting and UVB:

I use a uv bulb, and keep the light on for about 7 hours every day.

Temperatures and Humidity:

I have not researched this enough to explain the needs. This however is very important to know.

Heating and Equipment:

DO NOT USE A HEAT ROCK!!! It will burn your anole’s skin.

Caging Provided:

I use a 10 gallon tank for my anole. I have provided a water dish with a drip system, fake plants, and driftwood. Be sure to have a lot of thing that they can climb on in their tank, and be sure to have fake plants, which provide good hiding places.

Diet:

Omnivorous

Description of Diet:

They will eat crickets and mealworms. However, mealworms are not recommended because they’re fattening and are hard to digest because of their exo-skeleton. They will eat bananas, and I’m not sure what other fruits.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

You should dust your crickets with calcium every day. You can buy the dust at your local pet store.

Maintenance:

You should clean your anoles tank once a month.

Some Words on this Species:

These are great starter pets, you must make sure that you have done ALL of your research before buying. They can mostly be found anywhere in Florida, and also from your local pet store!
