    Hey I think I have a strange interspecies relationship going on here, I have a praying mantis and green anole housed together and they seem to get along. 06gUncu.jpg
    My green anole seems to have only started hanging upside down after seeing my praying mantis doing it .

    No, they aren't getting along. It could be mimicking behavior but every single anole i have ever owned has hung upside down like that. Those 2 should not be housed together.

    It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye or a head...

    Definitely not worth the risk in this situation. Mantids will go after hummingbirds, a small anole is nothing to them but a potential meal.
