New green anole sisters, so adorable

Postby DorgEndo » Tue Dec 22, 2020 4:26 pm

Yo!

Someone in our local herp community accidentally had green anole babies. I got 2 of them. I traded the green anoles for about 150 dubia roaches. They came with a little enclosure they are living in right now. I got a 100 watt CHE heat bulb and T8 5.0 bulb by Zoo med. I've read conflicting views on either 5.0 or 10.0 bulb strength. Still researching. They can get within 4 inches of the bulb right now and seem to enjoy basking

The enclosure they came in. They are about 3-4 months old

So this came up rather suddenly so I didn't have much time to plan anything.

I am going off what I taught myself when I was 6 or so years old and had a pair of anoles growing up.

My theory of socializing anoles is to keep a small container in their house. Some real or fake plant in it. Use this container to bring anoles outside. Let them crawl into your hand if they feel brave. I have an advantage starting with captive born babies, they have always known humans

Look at that brave green anole!

The girls came with the names Mary Kate and Ashley. Since they are sisters and anoles are very hard to tell apart. The names might stay. I'm not sure if I'll be able to tell which is which

Anoles are so cool! They got me interested in lizards when I was a kid and visited Florida. Hopefully they will wind up being fun pets for you.

Thank you Cooper

Look, it only took me a half hour to get a good picture of both sisters

They may have to called Mary Kate and Ashley because I can't tell them apart

Does one always look a little darker than the other? Or is that temporary or a photo illusion?

That color was different but they change colors a lot. Color is meaningless, ha ha.

However, I can finally tell them apart. One has bit more lippy face (light green in pic). The other has a smoother lip line (darker green in pic).
You'll...have to take my word for it :blob8: :blob8:
