breeding season is roughly autumn-november but it varies in captivity. throughout the breeding season anoles lay fertiled eggs every week or so. sometimes singular or in pairs. Eggs hatch within 6-8weeks. Only way i can think of to encourage breeding is split the male from the female(s) for a couple of weeks and then reintroduce them to eachother. :grin1:

um, i'd take the sawdust out and purchase some eco earth.
How many anoles do you have, you need at least 3 females to one male else your female may suffer from constant harassment.
Males are VERY active in the breeding season and will constantly display and chase females, you will not need help getting a male in the breeding mood.
just make sure your female/s have plenty of hiding spaces, and if you only have one male and one female, be prepared to separate them net year if she becomes darker in colour and shyer.

ive got a caresheet that will answer some of your questions...

yeh, or garden soil bags, just make sure it does'nt contain other elements, organic is probably preferred, you dont want anything with perlite.

spider substrate is usually vermiculite or sphagnum moss, like jinx and dean said coconut husk, eco earth or top soil are all good
