|Comment||Thank you for the reply. I didn't know about not leaving the crickets in. We did leave the box in. My husband and I did question if the crickets could have been the culprits. However, we had been leaving the crickets in with her for about the last year or so. Previously, we stuck to meal worms. That may be what we would feed if we got another anole. Thank you again for your opinion. Her deterioration was very rapid. We feel terrible about losing her.|
I can answer questions about health, diet, behavior, housing requirements, common illnesses, and general husbandry of most reptiles. My answers are not a substitute for veterinary care. If I don't feel confident about answering your question, I can generally point you to someone who can answer it, or advise you to seek veterinary help.
My father is a licensed veterinarian for 40+ years. He specialties include venomous American snakes, reptiles, rodents, primates, dogs, cats, goats, geese. I grew up assisting him and have always maintained rescued, injured, or unwanted reptiles. I'm familiar with snakes, most common lizards, turtles, terrapins and tortoises. I'm also familiar with Bearded Dragons and currently have several.
