Main Category:

Lizards

Sub Category:

Anoles

 Care Sheet Submitted By:

Emilio

Years Experience:

1 to 2 Years

Species:

Green Anole

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

Green Anoles

Sexing and Characteristics:

Males have a large red dewlap, females have a smaller, not as colorful.

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

A shallow water dish 1/2 a centimeter full, a stick in the dish so the live food dosenít drown, mist 2 or 3 times a day, 1 or 2 times if soil is a bedding because it becomes a bacteria breeding place. cage carpet is best, but if you have a cage that an anole is suposed to have you donít need a substrate since it should spend all the time in the plants and sticks you should have in there

Lighting and UVB:

8 to 12 hours of UVB light

Temperatures and Humidity:

Day is 75-80 degrees, 90-100 degrees when lighting, and 70-75 night time(if you say 100 degrees is too hot, your wrong Because if you lived in San Antonio it gets in the 100ís and green anoles are EVERYWHERE). humidity should be around 50%

Heating and Equipment:

A 60-100 UBV watt bulb, no heat rock (they will get sun burn and may be overheated and die because they only can sense heat from above them).

Caging Provided:

A water bowl, a shelter, sticks, plants, and minimum of ten gallon aquarium/vivarium.

Diet:

Omnivorous

Description of Diet:

Flys, grasshoppers (the small ones), mealworms, earthworms, crickets (again small), and spiders for meat. apricot and peach for fruit. wild caught anoles arenít used to fruit so they will only eat meat. If you caught your anoles(i wouldnít recommend they ate spiders because they hang around and youíll be feeding a spider instead and i wouldnít recommend catching them ether) they are used to wild bugs.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Dust crickets with vitamin powder.

Maintenance:

A shelter, fake plants, lots of sticks to climb

Some Words on this Species:

A not so great pet for a beginner. they change green to brown in around one minute. they change color depending on the temperature: green when warm, brown when cold. this species can be handled, but doesnít enjoy it. until they know your not a predator they will crawl onto your hand. never pick them up from the back. to them that is reckless handling.
