Just wanted to share a couple pics of my new green anole, Yaddle. My local reptile shop sells them as snake food and when I told them I wanted to get one as a pet they told me not to bother, that they make terrible pets, that they require UVB and heat, and that you can’t hold them. Good advice of course, except for the terrible pet part. I already have a large anole vivarium setup with another female I got months ago, a CHE on a day/night thermostat, two Sansi plant grow LEDs, and a 6% Arcadia T5HO UVB that I just replaced with a new bulb this weekend. Pet store guy seems to think that a $7 animal isn’t worth doing the right setup but I completely disagree. Anoles are really underrated, have great big personalities, and make wonderful pets. Yaddle has settled right into her new enclosure and is enjoying baby grasshoppers and crickets. I love her already!
