Main Category:

Lizards

Sub Category:

Anoles

 Care Sheet Submitted By:

Anoleluv

Years Experience:

Under 1 Year

Species:

Green Anole

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

N/A

Sexing and Characteristics:

A male anole will have a dewlap under its chin. Most female anoles do not, but the occasional female will have a small one.
Males are very territorial. Do NOT put two males together in the same cage. Although it may seem like they get along, once they mature, they will fight (sometimes to the death). Having one male plus two or more females will be okay. Females are less aggressive and will sometimes "snuggle" each other.

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

There is a variety of substrate you can use, but the best for them is organic peat/dirt.

Lighting and UVB:

Anoles should have a UVB light, and a Basking light (75 watts would be fine).

Temperatures and Humidity:

The temperature during the day should be about 70-85, while at night 65-75. The habitat should be misted at least twice a day, if not a little more.

Heating and Equipment:

N/A

Caging Provided:

The best and cheapest cage is just a 10 gallon tank. They should have 10 gallons per anole. In the tank you must have some plants (either real or fake), or something to climb on.

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

Anoles are insectivores, which means that they eat insects. They will ignore any dead insects, so you should get live ones. Most of an anoles diet should consist of crickets dusted with calcium, with an occasional waxworm as a treat. Don’t use wax worms as their staple diet, they have very little nutritional value, and are very fattening. I wouldn’t recommends meal worms either, because they are very hard for an anole to digest.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Feed the anole crickets dusted with calcium powder. You may also want to "gut load" your crickets by feeding them nutritional foods. I feed my crickets broccoli, celery, an orange slice (for moisture), asparagus, baby spinach, and a little piece of orange peel. You can basically use anything, I found all of those items in my fridge.

Maintenance:

N/A
