Week Four – Day Two – Anole Information

Well, it was a busy day yesterday and Terri did not get a chance to post.

We know that the Anole is carnivorous, but are they prey to other animals?  The answer is YES!  Birds, cats, snakes, sometimes spiders, and even humans will kill them.  While humans do not regularly eat Anole, they will kill them.   Sometimes this may be out of fear, or by accident.

An Anole is a good neighbor to have, they eat cockroaches and other pesky invertebrates.

Week Three – Day Five – Anole information

Researching the Green Anole, Terri came across two different words that were used to describe them:  ARBOREAL and SCANSORIAL, what do they mean??

ARBOREAL means that they live in the trees and SCANSORIAL means that they are capable of climbing because of their claws or LAMELLAE.

Week Three – Day Four – Anole information

Did you know that there are over 390 different species of the genus Anolis?  Our little green friend is the ONLY one native to North America.  Here are some illustrations of some Anole from Venezuela.  NOPE, Not as cute as our little friend!!  Don’t forget, we are still looking for name suggestions.

Week Three – Day Three – Anole information

Can you see me now???  The Green Anole can change colors like a Chameleon, although it is not related to the Chameleon.  Its ability to change color is not as varied or sophisticated as the Chameleon’s.

Week Three – Day Two – Anole information (a day late…)

OK, so we know that the babies are tiny, and on their own from day one… how long do the Anole live?  In the wild, they may live on average 3 – 5 years.  If all of their needs are met, they can live as long as 7 – 10 years of age.  The Green Anole is a good pet, although it is not recommended as a first pet.

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!

Week Two – Day Five – Anole information

Yesterday we talked about the Brown Anole and how it has become invasive.  In one article Terri read, there can be as many as 200 Brown Anole in a one acre area.  They have become so invasive that they are pushing the Green Anole up into the trees, and in some places, they are pushing them out.

Week Two – Day Four – Anole information

Did you know that there is a Brown Anole?  Although our little friend can turn brown, there is another species called the Brown Anole.  It is a bit smaller and comes from Cuba and the Bahamas.  It has become invasive in the US, meaning that it’s numbers are increasing.  As a result, we are seeing a reduction in the number of Green or Carolina Anoles.  The Brown Anole can change color from brown to almost black!
