i just got an anole from petsmart two days ago.i also bought an "all living things" anole starter kit with a ten gallon tank and some bark.the bulb doesn't seem to get the temp past 80 degrees and the humidity at has a water bowl and i mist it when ever i see it drop.the first day i put two crickets in to ate one right away, then i noticed later that the other one was gone i put in two more crickets and watched.they kept burrowing into the bark so i tried to move a few things around so the anole could get them. i found one that i thought he had eaten under the water bowl.he isn't showing any interest in food and he's been dark brown all day today but green yesterday.i don't want to hurt the little guy and i want him to be happy and live a long time.the tank we have for him is plastic with good ventilation and all but if i get a "heat lamp" i'm afraid it will get too hot for him and maybe even melt the tank.
