Why is my anole not eating?
It is important to rotate the foods that you offer your anole as well, as an anole that is only fed a single type of food is going to grow tired of that food and no longer want to eat it, leading to a perceived lack of appetite when in reality, they are just tired of the food you are offering them.
What do you do if your green anole won’t eat?
One thing I would suggest for you is Reptoboost, this is mixed with water and can be spayed in the tank, it is very useful with small lizards to help pick them up and encourage feeding. Also if he isn’t put off eating by too much dusting you could also try Avipro plus sprinkled on his food to help encourage appetite.
Why does my anole change colors?
