    Bought another anole about 3 weeks ago. Pretty sure is a male (if not its a pretty big girl LOL). Now I'm not so sure its a green anole like my female. Do male green get the spiney crest down its back? This guy also seems to be alot more scaley than the female (if that makes sense). I do not see the yellow streakes the Knight Anole is supposed to have on the shoulder and face, but could that be because its not old enough yet? He is much bigger than my female, how fast do the Knights grow, he's not that big?

    Well, any idea of what it could be? I've looked at every picture on the web I can find but the pictures are either blurry or don't match. He does go between green and brown colors, and seems to have brown splotches even when green. Don't think its a brown anole, as I thought they did not get green?

    The two are in individual tanks. He looks pretty happy, hunts often, drinks water from the leaves and bromelaids; although for his size I'd say he's a tad skinny. He's going to the bathroom pretty regular, so here's praying he is parasite free.

    Well let me know if you have any ideas on how I can tell what kind he is. No way to post picture, sorry.

    Well, if he is turning green, he is definitely NOT a brownie. I don't know about whether or not he could be a knight anole without a pic of him. And yes, both greenies and brownies have crests. If it's a spiny crest, it's probably a knight anole. Just keep an eye on his growth for a while. If he gets over eight inches, he's a knight anole.

    Good luck!

    Thanks FlyTrapGirl,

    Does over 8 inches include the tail or is it snout to end of body?

    He just had his first shed since I've had him, and aside from I think he's still too skinny, he's doing great :-)

    Anoles, cool lil lizrds, just had a nice article in the newest reptiles magazine. Well, you said they had a crest on its back, to my knlowedge, greens dont have that, could be a small cuban or jamaican (the most common large anoles for sale). How much did you pay?

    Cephalotus88: I just read it too. I do agree on the knight anole thing... From my experiance around here in TX (GREEN ANOLELAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just some words of wisdom from the herp guru (read obsessed)

    Linda,
    yes, including the tail.

    P.S. Dyflam posted a pic of a green anole. I will try to find a pic of a knight anole so you can compare them.
