I currently have a male American green anole & he isn't shy at all. In fact when I try to put him in his tank he clings to my finger and refuses to go back in. However I think he may be sick because he hasn't touched his crickets/mealworms or drank in 3 days so I'll have to take him to my local reptile pet clinic later today.
I live in northwest Indiana, while working on a machine in our fab shop a small lizard ran out from under the machine. I quickly caught it and have him at home. I didn't think Green Anole's were from this area.
I had 4 green anoles, but one that I had for 5 years past away today. Their names are mothra (the one that died), nubby (his taill fell off), scrawny (shes so tiny), and scabbers(a little fellow who likes to bite). Nubbys real name was godzilla but one day when I took him out of the tank to put him in the feeding cage his tail fell off. He now has an inch long tail but he's so cute, he always manages to get out of the tank and sit in the window.
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 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.
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?
I have 2 green anoles. One, I bought while I was on vacation last summer at myrtle beach, and recently my uncle brought me another from his Georgia hunting trip. The new one is significantly smaller than the other and I am unsure whether to put them in the same tank or leave them separated. The larger one is constantly showing his dewlap, I'm not sure whether he just sees his reflection or he is in the "mood". I would like to put them together and see if they mate or not, but I don't want the smaller one to get eaten or something. So if anyone has any experience in this area, I would like to learn more about this process.
Anoles are so cute and small, we have some in our class.
I live in Indiana and I have 2 green anoles, and I enjoy watching them change colors a lot. I have had a terrarium for quite some time with a tree frog and a fire bellied toad. I read that they are compatible and so I got Noel (we got him on Christmas eve) and Barker. Later, when one showed it's dulap, I found that one is male and one is female. Maybe they might breed!(I have plenty of moist peat moss.)
