Week Three – Day One – Anole information

Are baby Anole born live, or do they hatch from eggs?

The female Anole lays eggs in a small hole dug into moist soil.  She usually lays one egg in a clutch at a time, sometimes, she may lay two.

Eggs are laid 2 times a month for about 4 – 5 months.  In ideal conditions, the egg will hatch in about 30 – 45 days.  Each hatchling is about 2 inches long when born, and like the Sea Turtle, must fend for itself right away.

As you can see by the picture, the eggs are TINY!
