My cat, Buddy-Boy, went out this morning and some way smuggled a Green Anole into the house and I found it this afternoon, between my two cats minus a tale barely breathing. I took it outside, but it grabbed onto my finger and wouldn't let go. I sat on the steps and held my finger on a plant leaf. I attempted to give it (he or she) H2O and finely it opened it's mouth wide, enabling me to give it a drop and let go of my finger, and put it on a leaf. Well, it was still having great difficulty breathing, but at least it was trying. It finally fell off the plant leaf onto my front steps, so I have put it in a plastic container with grass, some H2O and other outdoor things - out of harms way. I hope it will make it.

    It's happening to me but I caught mine wild in South Carolina and I've had it about a year but it was fully grown when I caught it but it's barely breathing and won't drink any water.

I want to thank you for this site. We just bought an Iguana an hour ago so ago. I am doing my research to keep it happy and healthy. He is a big one, more than I expected(about the length of my arm). So beautiful! I will be taking him to the vet tomorrow to give him a check up and learn anything else that I should know. Again I thank you for such a wealth of information!

I used to catch anoles and keep them as as pets. They were always docile and easy to handle. My favorite one would ride everywhere on my shoulder. I was riding my bike and he fell off of my shoulder. I freaked out when I realized he was gone. When I returned home from looking for him, he was sitting on my front porch. Also he was so still and so green people always thought he a decorative piece of jewelry like a broach or a pin.

Since I moved north where they are not available in the wild, I've been into a few a pet stores to check into buying another one. But the ones in the pet stores are spastic and I could not tame them like the wild ones. So I probably will not own another one until I move back south and just catch them in the wild!!

I have a green anole that we caught. He is very tame and was easy to catch. We were on a field trip when we caught them. A lot of students caught them.

Very informative site! Keep up the good work! I just purchased a 4 foot female iguana we named "Dizzy Lizzy". She is sweet but came to us in a very small aquarium considering her size, so we built a new temporary enclosure that is 7 feet 7 inches tall, 39 inches wide and 21 inches deep. I know it's not quite the size she needs but it's beats what she has now and we will build her something much bigger just as soon as we get our home remodeling projects completed and figure out where the next enclosure will go. She is not my first large iggy but it has been sometime since I have had iggy's, so I am relearning all I can to make sure she has the best care we can give her. It's a new experience for my hubby & my 2 young sons.

This is hard to believe but we live next to a pond in Loveland, Ohio (Cincinnati suburb) and today just spotted a green iquana sitting on the rocks next to the pond. It is defintely not a lizard but an iguana because there are spines running down his/her back. I know he/she will die when it gets cold. Anyone have any ideas? Should I call the zoo? It is now Sept, 24th and it's supposed to get cold next week.

You should never use heat rocks, they can cause serious burns for iguanas. Need to look up temps... UVB tubes 5.0, 8.0, 10.0, compacts can cause eye damage. Iguanas should NEVER be put in a 10 gallon tank.

I have several Green Anole Geckos around our pool area. They have been there for several years. Fun to watch. I live in the north Texas area. Today, for the first time, I noticed one that seemed to be shedding it's skin. Is this common? It ate the white thin coating as it became loose.

How may I insure they get the proper feeding?
