    What's up everyone,

    Ok I've read everything I can about anoles. Almost all authors talked about keeping only one male per setup and that the best way to tell if you have a male is to look for postanal pores. I really want to keep many anoles in one large terrarium, so I want to stay away from males. Can anyone please give me a definitive answer about what these postanal pores look like? No matter how many pictures of the undersides of anoles I've seen I can never figure out where the postanal pores are or even what they look like.

    Thanks for the help

    From my experiance, they are a V shape (not the individual pores, but the group of them, and they are little depressed "dots" or "bumps".

    Another way to tell is, when you hold the anole, look right under it's jaw, on its neck. VERY GENTLY pull just a little on the pinkish flap of skin. When it comes out all the way, look at it. It should be a pinkish red color. If it's very small, it's a female. If it's large, it's a male. I usually don't have to use either of these methods, because, over the years, I've learned to simply look at an anole, even from a distance, and instantly be able to tell if it's a male or female.

    Good luck!

    I have two males in a large grow chamber, about 5ft high.
    I have had no problems with them fighting. Sometimes they even sleep next to each other on the same stick. They have plenty of room if they wanted to stay away from each other but they are always in the same spot. I asked for a male and a female when I bought them but I got two males instead. I was thinking about getting two females to put in there, what do you guys think?
