Reptiles/Brown Anole Leg Cyst


His cyst?
His cyst?  
Hi, I've been wondering what sprouted near my brown anole's hind leg, and if there is a homemade remedy that will help.Telling by the picture below I'm thinking it is a tumor. so any way I can lance it?He is about 2 years old.


This is something that definitely requires a vet's attention. I would not recommend attempting to lance or otherwise drain this mass at home. even a small amount of blood loss is serious in an Anole. I wish I could be more helpful, but like I said, this is beyond a question I can answer over the internet.

Best of luck

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.
