This is a hobby site built by your everyday reptile enthusiast.

The goal of it is educate new and prospective green anole owners. These reptiles get a bad rep because they’re poorly raised.

Since they’re so easily affordable, they’ve become a “novelty” pet- where the owner either doesn’t invest the right time to learn about how to properly care for it OR they lose interest.

The green anole guides on this website are made to EDUCATE!

I hope you get a ton of value from these articles and give your green anole the proper care that it deserves.
