Main Category:

Lizards

Sub Category:

Anoles

 Care Sheet Submitted By:

DragonWolf3X

Years Experience:

3 to 5 Years

Species:

Green Anole

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

Brown anoles

Sexing and Characteristics:

Males are larger and have a wrinkled skin under their necks to where there dewlap is, although some females have those too, itís hard to distinguish

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

They like peat moss, and soil with plant clippings, that is, when they do come down to the floor of the cage. they either need a longer, wider, shallow water dish, or you could also have instead, 2 small water dishes on each side.

Lighting and UVB:

They need a low watt heat lamp, or a light fixture of the fluorescent kind with a small bulb. it should be on at least 8 hours a day but no more than10 hours.

Temperatures and Humidity:

They like it hot, between 70 and 80 degrees, and lower at night. humidity is easy, spray the tank with a spray bottle and water down the substrate so the tank will retain moisture.

Heating and Equipment:

Heat lamps, or heat emitting bulbs only. heat mats and rocks are no good since they climb to the tops. sticks and plants as equipment, simple stuff

Caging Provided:

I have 10 gallon for 2 small anoles. there are many sticks and fake plants, and even a real one, make sure there is a lid and many hiding spots.

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

Crickets mainly of course. but meal worms are acceptable, they donít eat stuff that doesnít move unless starving, it must be live. they can be picky.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

I donít use them, but you probably should.

Maintenance:

Clean cage at least twice a month, not too much more. clean the sticks though, cause they like to go to the bathroom on them mainly.

Some Words on this Species:

This is hard to find info on: when a male sees a female or sees a rival male, they flare their dewlaps and bob their heads, this means they want to mate, or that they are just telling the other male that this is my territory and Iím in charge, it doesnít mean they donít like the other male. trust me, mine still get along, and sometime,"dance" together.l

brown anoles are about the same.
