I've had this anole (daughter named her Ancalagon the Black) since late June. She was a classroom pet that the teacher brought into the pet store I work at because none of the kids wanted to take her home. She's been doing well, has shed about 4 times in the time I've had her. She was in a 12x12x18 Zoo Med naturalistic terrarium with 2 live plants, a silk plant, a hollow half log, a drift wood branch and a manzanita branch with jungle earth over hydroball substrate and sphagnum moss here & there. She had a compact florescent UVB bulb (10-12 hours a day) and a 60W red nightlight reptile bulb (24/7), misting 3-4 times a day, humidity varying from 50-85%. The lights were in a mini deep double dome hanging from a light stand so that the fixture was just above the mesh top, just high enough to not touch it. I recently came across a 29 gallon aquarium that someone got rid of, and decided to upgrade Ancalagon's digs. I washed the tank out thoroughly with hot water and bleach (thorough rinse afterwards), added some new plants that I washed all of the soil from the roots of, rinsed the leaves then planted in a mixture provided by Fauna in NYC in the jungle earth over red clay gravel substrate. Due the cost, I added to the new tank slowly. I used a spare fixture and UVA bulb (from a tropical reptile kit I bought when I first brought her home and no longer use) to provide light for the plants. Over the course of about 5 weeks I got everything set up and finally transferred Ancalagon to the new tank and added a friend - another anole that I am pretty confident is also female (daughter named this one Smaug). The new tank has a Zoo Med strip light with a ReptiSun T8 10.0 bulb (I have a 5.0 on order), the double dome with a 60W red light at one end and the fixture that came with the kit I mentioned before with another 60W red light at the other end (the two seem to have settled on opposite sides of the tank). I have two drift wood branches, the manzanita branch, 7 live plants (three pothos, two large croton, one smaller-leaved croton, and I'm not sure what the other plant is called but I got it at Fauna too), two silk hanging plants, one plastic standing plant, a lizard ladder on each short end of the tank, two hollow half logs and sphagnum moss here & there. I feed them small crickets every few days or so. I put about 10-12 small crickets in on Monday and there are still some in the tank today. I feed the crickets both Rainforest Junky's cricket gutload and Repashy's Bug Burger along with little pieces of pear. I had been giving them some of the Fluker's orange cube complete cricket diet as well, but the jar was getting a funky smell so I threw it out. I put a dish with cricket food in the tank with the anoles to avoid the crickets getting hungry and going after the anoles. When I moved Ancalagon to the new tank, I managed to get a picture of her and noticed that she had a lump on either side of her neck, between the shoulder and jaw. At first I thought she was just fat, but looking at another picture I got of her, I'm wondering now if it's more than that. Does anyone have any insight on this? I am pretty new to owning reptiles (my son had an anole about 20 years ago, another class pet) and don't know if this is something I should worry about (although I guess I'm already worrying!). I'll try to attach the photos I have.
