Species:

Anolis Roquet

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

Other Tropical Anoles of Central America and Carribean

Sexing and Characteristics:

Males are brightly coloured and have a base colour of emerald green with yellow and blue spots. Females are mainly olive green or are a greenish brown.

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

I keep my anolis roquet on cypress mulch which tends to keep the cage more humid. I have also had success with potting soil and a mix of the two. The anoles must be misted daily with warm water and will lap up water droplets from glass, plants and decorations. As with most anoles they cannot reconize standing water.

Lighting and UVB:

These anoles fair best with a warm basking spot which can be given through a heat lamp placed over head. I whould As these are basking lizards they’ll also require a floresant bulb over head to provide UVB.

Temperatures and Humidity:

The anolis cage sould be at a steady temperature of 80 to 84 degrees as these anoles come from a very warm climate. The temperature should vary more from day to night than season to season. A sharp drop in temperature must be avoided at all costs! A high humidity must also be maintained at around 70 to 90 percent.

Heating and Equipment:

Heat lamps will be a main source of heat since anolis roquet normally gets it’s heat fromabove in the wild. Heat pads can also provide additional heat if needed.

Caging Provided:

These animals will be most comfortable in a 30 gallon tank. One male can be kept with two or three females but they can be prefectly happy by themselves. The will need a well planted tank with plently of branchs and hiding places. Branches sould be different widths as well as vertical and horizontal.

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

Crickets, mealworms, waxworms, small spiders and fruitflies are all taken by these lizards.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

The use of supplements for vitamins and calcium are recommended. Use and dosage will vary.

Maintenance:

Feed them every other day and dust their food with supplements one every week. Photoperiod is important if you wish to breed.

Some Words on this Species:

Males are very agressive towards one another. Keep them apart!
