    Easy way to catch an anole?

    No, he hasn't escaped yet but I want to build a new terarrium stand and remodel the current terrarium this weekend with some new plants, deeper soil level, etc. so that will all entail catching the little bugger.

    Last year I somehow got him to jump into my square gallon mantis hatching jar (has a screen lid) filled with leaves and a stick so I could do the initial setup but he might not go for that again.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    They aren't that fast; the Anole here can be caught with your bare hands. Be gentle.

    I'd be too afraid of crushing the litte guy.

    Then use a little aquarium net, or corral him into a jar like you did last time.

    I like Anole. They always have this look on their face....

    I like it too wish s/he wasn't so skittish. The ones at the shops are all laid back maybe that's cos there's a group and not just the one?

    grab them behind the head so they can't twist around and bite you. You could also try using a mirror to get it to come closer. Males hate other males.
