    I don’t care if its aggressive I am not going to play with it. I just wanted to know if it can survive in my green house. Animals are the best pest control you can have. Better than spraying poison on everything.

    Well in that case what you REALLY need is a bat. Now I know this guy....

    Seriously thought what about a bug zapper? Then you can feed the dead bugs to your plants.

    Somebody living in the tropics has a photo of a Nepenthes with a gecko caught in it-I can't remember who.
    Tokay's get up to 12" I think. The first one I ever saw, a childehood friend in NC owned and it was actually tame. He would sit on an arm and if you stood several feet away and hel your arm out, it would actually leap to it!
    With that size and the strength to leap like that, I do not think a plant can take it down.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I just saw a BIG anole yesterday on our deck, he was pretty cool. Those little critters are all over the place, I can't imagine someone buying one from a petstore lmao.

    have you ever seen a king anole before?
    those things get like 2 feet long and are about as mean as tegus.
    And they both draw quite a bit of blood when they bite as well, probably because they do the whole croc twist.

    Nope, never seen one that big. I'd run away. I like anoles because their facial expression always looks SO bored and apathetic.

    We have Anolis carolinensis here. It's really cool to watch them bob their heads and puff their puff sack things. I pronounce it anol-ay like it's spanish. It's wrong but it sounds better to me.
