We decided our son is old enough to take care a couple more critters, so we purchased a lizard setup. The terrarium is big enough for two Anoles. These lizards are accustomed to consistent heat and humidity, and the dwell in branches; they don’t crawl on the ground. Our terrarium is upright instead of long, there is room for branches to be placed inside. The Anoles spend most of their time in the branches.


Anoles can change color within a range of bright green to dark brown. One of the Anoles is often mottled, and when he is hunting, he is green with a brown hood.

Daily care is fairly simple: live crickets and meal worms, water source, and spray the inside  for humidity. We enjoy watching them!
