 Anole with skinny legs?

So this guy I have had maybe three months, I keep him with some Brown anoles and they seem to do fine together, and he eats everyday or sometimes every other day, I feed him mainly Surinam cockroaches and whatever else I can find like wild mealworms grasshoppers and grubworms. But for some reason he has skinny legs, maybe he’s just skinny, is it from lack of exercise or something? Here’s a pic, I’d appreciate any advice :)

Oh and his set up is a 10 gallon glass terrarium kept outside (doesnt get above 90 degrees F.)

Thanks!

The pic didn’t show up... Is he a green anole? Does he have branches to crawl up and down on? Skinny legs is usually due to a lack of intake, so if he’s actually eating well, you might be dealing with a parasite. Hard to say without pics, can you post a link?

The link doesn’t work for some reason... odd. You can email me at ambubadger -@- gmail -.- com. I’m thinking he may be emaciated if the brown anoles are bullying him. When you feed them, do you actually see him grabbing a bite or two, or do you go by the number of remaining roaches? Do you dust his food with vitamin powder? And how tall are the plants?

I’ll send a pic of the plants and of the lizard though email, and everytime I feed him I make sure he eats them I’ll stand by the cage and watch till he’s done and I dust the food every third meal. This is a weird place since the links won’t work e.e my bad lol

I sent a reply to your email, but basically your anole looks fine as far as the legs go-- if anything, his midsection is a little tubby!
