    WHat's that moving in my terarrium

    I was looking at my terrarium from across the room tonight and saw something move. I figured it was just a big moth that finally found his way in. When i went to look here's what I found:



    I've been studying tree frogs and dart frogs as possible future inhabitants when I got the tank setup naturally the way I wanted so this was totally unexpected. Right now it's just an empty aquarium with a false bottom and about 30 plants in 2-4" pots that I've recieved over the last month or so from all over the US, including hawaii. So he couldve come from anywhere. definatley not a local critter for Minnesota. My guess is he came in as an egg in a pot since he's so tiny.

    I'm planning on getting some fruit fly cultures tomorrow since I think even the small crickets at petsmart would be too large for him.
    Will I need to get some nutrient dust to put on the flies too?

    Hopefully someone can help me, I'd like to keep this little guy healthy and happy.

    Him on the plant label is how I found him after I saw the movement in the tank and went to investigate. After he saw me he just froze. Now I can't find him after I've been here on the PC!

    WOW its a Brown Anole (cuban brown anole), Anolis sagrei






    Thats a male with a extended dewlap. Yours might be a female, but same species, no?

    Theres 2 species that can have 'cuban' in front of it. The brown anole has a cuban subspecies. Theres also the Cuban knight Anole (Anolis equestris), not this species. Both are called 'cuban anole'. Confused yet?

    And both are introduced to florida, too, BTW.



    I used to keep these as a pet, thats how i know. I love them great species
    that makes no logic
