me and my friend walked in my room and he looked in my anole viv and few seconds later i heard him say " oh my god they're doing it" so looked over and they were in fact doing it. anyway i was just wondering what people who breed them do when the female lays the eggs eg. do you use an icubator, do you leave them in the viv...?

Eggs must be incubated soon after they are laid. Pick the eggs up without turning them; place them in the same position in which they were found. Use vermiculite or some type of soil that allows for ventilation. A plastic sweater box with holes punched in the lid will keep them warm and will provide some air- flow. The substrate must be kept moist but not wet, and temperatures should be around 85F, for about 40 days.

thats interesting, is that the big round UV bulb instead of the tube?

We use two 150 watt bulbs in ours, they used to be brown all the time and always in the top of the viv, but since using 300w in total they have been green and use the whole viv instead of just the top half.

I love seeing how other people do things differently to us, get my brain ticking, lol :lol:
