Live reptiles available only in Petco stores. Selection varies by store. Check your local store for availability.
These small lizards are active and require larger habitats than would be expected from their body size. Anoles are commonly kept in groups of 2 or more and should be housed in a 20L or larger habitat. If keeping one anole, a 10-gallon habitat is suitable. They also love to climb and perch themselves in branches, so make sure to provide plants and other decor for them. While predominantly known to be green, anoles will often change to brown hues as well dependant on mood and temperature rather than to camouflage with their surroundings.
