    Newest addition to my menagerie ...

    Anolis sagrei. Unsure if it is a male or female. I had popped by my local Petsmart for crickets to feed the hungry masses. One of the staff there asked me if I knew anyone willing to adopt an anole. It is paralyzed from the hips back so they couldn't sell it nor could they ship it back to their supplier. So it came home with me.

    AWW Its adorable Glad you adopted it because it would likely have died otherwise. I hope you have good luck with him He looks like a pretty chill guy. Can he move around? Or will you have to handfeed him?

    Probably MBD(metabolic bone disease), looking at its crooked spine and its back leg paralysis.. Make sure to dust her crickets in a calcium powder with vitamen D3.. might be helpful to give her a UVB light as well..

    its also a female.. small head, the pattern is TYPICALLY a female pattern but i've seen males have something similar, and no.. "balls". lol.. Anoles have fairly obvious hemipenal bulges..

    A pair

    Thanks, Brie! MBD hadn't occurred to me as a cause -- though considering a chain petstore, it probably should have.
