Why is my Bahama Anole not eating?

My lizard is going to starve.

The most common cause for a bahama anole not to eat is STRESS! Make sure your Anole is in the proper environment - proper heat,lighting and food.

Several things may have happened. What does your anole eat - too many mealworms and your lizzard may become impacted. Did your lizzard accidently eat a piece of the cage substrate? This will also cause impaction. For these possibilities you need to get the anole to a good exotics vet. Also lizzards need lots of UVB light in day/night cycles.

Anoles tend to not eat if their lighting is not correct. The lighting directly affects their digestion process. If the lighting is ok, I would suggest taking him to a vet that specialises in reptiles. Also be sure that your Anole is getting enough calcium in his or her diet.

A Bahama Anole needs proper lighting so be sure to check and make sure they are getting the calcium they need. The lighting helps them digest food.

"What do they eat? the ones I just got won't eat the crickets my other anole does. Do the bahama anole's eat something else? their tails are different from the Green anole, like a crocodile's tail. I'm preparing to put a plant in the tank to see if it works."
