everything needed to stay healthy and alive

Anoles often change from one color to another two show how they feel. When green it shows that its comfortable, and active. when brown it shows its cold or can be aggressive. The male is head is always bigger also the dewlap.

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

Anoles often drink droplets from plants. it is very important to let your anole a few hour on a plant with a lot of branches and leafs. a spray of water is needed. anoles will often drink out of a shallow dish but in order to do that you should put an ice cube tin top of a screen cage and let it melt in drip in the dish to attract the anoles.!!Anoles will rarely drink still water.

Lighting and UVB:

Your anole needs a uvb light. it is very important to give it one. it will give them vitamin d. a special lighting is required not an ordinary lighting. about 70 watts will do. let the anole have access to that lighting for 12 hours.

Temperatures and Humidity:

In the day your anole should have about 80-95 degrees Fahrenheit. in the night it should not drop 60 degrees Fahrenheit and below. it should stay about 65-80-degrees Fahrenheit.

Heating and Equipment:

N/A

Caging Provided:

These are very important stuff you need for your anole. A 10 gallon tank for at least five anoles, allot of branches(from stores because they are cleaned and ill free), an shallow dish to drink water, a thermometer and a substrate on the cage floor such as a mix of moss peat or bark mulch.

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

The size of the food should be no larger that half the size of the anole’s head. It is also important that the food given is nutritious and keeps the anole’s diet balanced. A variety of crickets and mealworms should be given also roaches should be given. an anole may sometimes enjoy a piece of fruit.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Gut loaders should be given for crickets or mealworms. it is important to have another small plastic cage for the crickets, roaches or mealworms to provide food for them. when buying food for your anole let it spend at least 2 hours in the other cage eating those vitamins.

Maintenance:

Try not to hold your anole allot it may stress out or jump out of your grasp. it could hurt itself or it could run under a piece of furniture. a baby anole eats more than the adult. never let the anole sleep with a lot of crickets it may try to eat parts of your anole.

Some Words on this Species:

I think this is a fabulous species. it is very incredible to own one of these beautiful animals.
