Our blondi molted a few weeks ago, been eatin a few crics, about a dozen a week so we decided a bigger prey item might be good at this point. I never knew that guy could move so fast lol By the time i took the pic the anole had stopped breathing, guess that venom works good on reptiles. Heres a couplke of pics.

The blondi had an outbreak of mites a few days after his molt, kinda odd because there wasnt any food in there for six weeks prior. I put him on calcium carbonate to dry out the mites. Next week will be four weeks and then he goes back into a new enclosure.

I read your post on feeding reptiles to T's, but this is not a regular prey item for our T's. But i will let you know if it happens. :D

Are you sure it's the poison taht killed the anole? My guess is that the mechanical damage from a blondi should'nt be underestimated! If a fang hits the skull of the lizard it's the same as instant death...

Nice pictures btw!

Thats very possible, the first pic is of his first bite and he held it like that for a few minutes, nice perception of that though.

What a beautiful,velvety-soft looking T! Can I ask a Q? If you're gonna feed Anoles, or an Anole once in awhile, what would your feeding schedule be? In my collection I have a fast-growing L. parahybana and an adult G. rosea (who never eats :wall: )and want to introduce new prey . I haven't come to terms with feeding them mammals so I was thinking about lizards....my choice of prey items around here is very limited, and I don't have enough T's to order bulk or breed anything( the old man won't let me have roaches......) Fangx!!

Actually they didnt have any pinkies in so we bought an anole instead. Usually its a pinkie every other week with approximately a dozen large crics in between.
I feel your pain on the roaches, the wifey wont let me have roaches either. :mad:
