What do Anolis eat?

What do Anolis eatOne of the first things to remember when dealing with any species of lizard that are insectivores is that they benefit greatly from a varied diet just as they would have in the wild. Of course in captivity it would be hard to offer grubs, crickets, cockroaches, spiders, moths, and almost any thing else they can catch and swallow for a complete diet so we do the best we can. Whatever you feed you should try to be sure that the prey is not bigger than the space between the lizards eyes.
Juvenile Green Anoles should be fed daily and adults can be fed every other day. They should be allowed to eat all they will eat which usually amounts to 1 - 3 prey insects of the correct size depending on the age of your Anole. Any prey that is not eaten should be removed from the enclosure to prevent dead prey from polluting the Anoles environment as well as to protect the Anole from becoming food for hungry prey insects.



Anolis description:

Anolis is a genus of lizards belonging to the family Polychrotidae. With nearly 400 species, Anolis represents the world's most species rich amniote genus. Several species of Anolis are occasionally ascribed to the genus Norops, but the validity of the Norops genus is not widely accepted. The Green Anole (Anolis carolinensis) has recently become the first reptile to have its complete genome sequenced.
