The Henderson Anole is a bit harder to come by in the pet trade.

Since the brown anole was been introduced into southern Florida there has been a significant decline in the green anole population in rural and urban areas. The brown and green anoles are similar in size with simliar feeding habits. There is probably competition between the two related species in their habitat, as well as "intra-guild predation," meaning they eat each others' hatchlings. The full extent of the interactions between these two species, and the ecological effects of the invasion of brown anoles in southeastern North America is not known.
Reminds me of when I had King Tut, Jack Jill as pet anoles in grade school :)

I was not in the market for a lizard but my daughter captured a sweet little anole outside in the cold. Considering it has been near freezing here in Alabama-the lizard was probably slow on the escape. Now I am on a crash course on keeping this little guy alive. Since it is winter we have been unable to find crickets. I have thrown some insects in there and am keeping it warm. I appreciate all the valuable information I have found here on this site…thus moving our auquariam out of the garage into the kitchen. This little lizard LOVES my little girl. It has been crazy to watch how it just stays on her like an actual pet. My question is -how can I go about finding insects in the winter to feed this little guy? Would it be better to release it back into our yard? I hope this helps. Good luck with your new lizard. Anoles are really wonderful pets!

Green anoles have been the quintessential pet lizard for decades, but what most people don't realize is how many different species of this reptile exist. If you're looking to buy an anole, please peruse the below listing of our available anoles for sale. When you purchase a lizard from us, you automatically receive our live arrival guarantee.

Different areas of the habitat should be at different temperatures, so reptiles can move around to heat up or cool off. Anoles are comfortable with a daytime temperature in their tank of 74-84 degrees and a nighttime temperature of 66-72. Use a daylight heat bulb in a heat lamp during the day to keep the temperature up in their tank. Most stores do not recommend using hot rocks. For one, it is not natural for an anole to move to the forest floor to obtain heat. Also due to the construction of hot rocks, they can cause overheating of the pet. If the place you live gets cold at night, use a low wattage night heat bulb (which gives off heat but not much light) in a heat lamp, or an under-tank-heating pad made especially for reptiles. (Do not use ones made for humans.) If you use a reptile-heating pad, remember to turn it off during the day.The Anole lizard is incredible in its ability to camouflage itself in its environment. Thus, an owner can decorate the cage in mainly green colors to keep them a beautiful emerald color. As they only get to be about six inches in length, they are the perfect pets for anyone who does not have a lot of space. Plus watching these very swift reptiles capture prey, especially winged ones, can be really amazing to watch.Green Anoles (Anolis carolinensis) were one of the first lizards to be widely available in the US pet trade. Although there were bright spots, our knowledge of their needs was severely lacking, and millions met untimely ends as a result (Horned Lizards, Phrynosoma spp., the other trade staple at the time, remain difficult captives still). Today we (and they!) fare better, but as my own experience indicates, the road has been rocky…
