 Male anole not eating

Hi! I had the same exact problem as you. :)

The male might be dehydrated. Try misting the leaves with a spray bottle. In the wild, anoles lap water off leaves and sticks.
They won’t usually drink from water bowls. ( It just doesn’t come naturally to them )

Try waxworms. Waxworms have a lot of fat in them and some protein. ( Don’t feed the anole too much of it or it might prefer the waxworms over its staple diet. Waxworms are only treats )

Offer a wide variety of food ( some anoles like fruit )

The male might be dehydrated. Try misting the leaves with a spray bottle. In the wild, anoles lap water off leaves and sticks.

Hope this helps! Good luck!
