It is very important to feed your Green Anole lizard crickets, waxworms, mealworms, and other live food. If crickets are not available in your local pet store, many stores sell crickets online for reptile food. Because keeping lizards in captivity restricts the sorts of live prey they would consume in their natural environment, you should give them calcium powder or cuttlebone once a week or two.
You can buy calcium powder at any pet store. This will help prevent your Green Anole lizard from getting metabolic bone disease and other deficiencies if they are lacking key nutrients in their diet.
Do not feed your Green Anole too many waxworms or mealworms, because these insects contain a lot of fats and proteins that, when combined with the lack of other nutrients, can be harmful to your Green Anole lizard’s health.
Follow these 4 tips and you will have a healthier pet!
1. Feed crickets an all-vegetable diet.
2. Supplement crickets (and other live prey) with calcium powder or cuttlebone.
3. Do not feed Green Anoles too many waxworms or mealworms.
4. Feed Green Anoles (and other live prey) every week.
That’s all for 6 tips on feeding crickets to your Green Anole lizard.
