    Cuban Night Anole Wont Eat

    She has been acting fine up till this past week. She was eating normally then she hadent eatin since monday. I got here to eat some broken up peach and pear chunks today. Humidity is between 50-80%, temperature during the day is anywhere from 78 to 85 and it has a uvb T8 bulb thats a couple of weeks old. Misting 3 times a day also. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Monday I fed her some wax worms and by some i mean 6 or 7 she loves them. But she wouldnt eat any crickets i put in the cage. The stor only had larges which i think are a little to big and thats the only size the have had for weeks. I dont know maybe she got impacted from the large crickets last week. Please Help

    You need to bring your temperatures up. The ambient temp should be around 80 but there should be a basking spot of approx 95 degrees.
    Waxworms are like candy. Feeding them the lizard is likely not interested in anything else and is holding out for more waxworms!
    But don't give in.

    could the temperature and worms be causing her to have a runny stool. I just noticed this just now when observing her.

    It could, since improper temps interfere with their digestive process.
    But that is likely the result of the fruit. They are largely insect eaters.

    i dont think it was the fruit since i fed her fruit and an hour later i saw the stool. This is the first time i fed her fruit ever so its not that.

    Fluids go thru the system faster than foods do.
    Was the stool runny before the fruit?

    I dont believe so. Can fruit go through their system that fast.

    Also, i havent feed her worms in a couple of weeks so the change in diet all of a sudden could have caused this right.

    The fluids could. Ever sit down with a big slice of watermelon?

    That too.
