 Care Sheet Submitted By:

Years Experience:

1 to 2 Years

Species:

Anoles

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

Brown or green Anoles/Florida and Bahama Anoles

Sexing and Characteristics:

Length: Male grow to be about 8 inches. Females grow to be about 6 inches. The male has a dewlap(orange/red) is used to grab her attention and then, sudue her into mating.

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

What I recommend is Repti-ladders and repti-hammocks for thier daily exersize. You should have a stick or two also.If you
want you can buy vines and thermometers in places like Petco, and BTJís jungle.
I use reptile rocks. Which you put water in the carving. Itís plastic but they love it!

Lighting and UVB:

I use a 9 watt bulb and leave on them. I have a Repti- thormometer,so i know what the tempature is. UVB is great for breeding.

Temperatures and Humidity:

Anoles need to to be in a tempature of 75-82 degrees in day time, 82-89 degrees in the basking spot and can take not too much less than 67 degrees at night.

Heating and Equipment:

I use a small light to sit on top of my screened tank. You can use clamp lamps and regular lamps. Not too big though! Also a thermometer as i also mentioned earlier.

Caging Provided:

I have a ten gallon tank with 2 anoles and 1 grass lizard(they can be together with other kinds of lizards but not all.)

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

For crickets which i use, get pinheads for smaller Anoles and small for bigger Anoles. Meal worms, are good, but, ONLY FEED THEM TO YOUR ANOLE IF THEY ARE SMALLER THAN ITíS HEAD!!!!! Wax worms are great but they are high in fat and not that high in nutrients. So donít feed them to your anole on a daily basis. If your anole is too skinny, maybe one wax worm every one and a while.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Calcium suppliments are great for getting D3 into your anoles diet. Calcium and vitimins are a great way to give your anole the proper nutrion.

Maintenance:

Clean your anoles cage every 3-4 weeks. When shedding season arrives be sure every2 weeks to get the dead skins out.

Some Words on this Species:

Anoles are not good starter reptile pets. If they get away youíll never see them again.
Hope you enjoy your pet!
