    I don't know if any of you can help me but I need an to know if an anole lizard can live in a 2 gallon tank. At first I thought that this was an all animal site so don't judge. If you can't help at least tell me how you can build a cheap but working incubater!!! Please!

    I know nothing about anoles but I would recommend posting in Miscellaneous > Other Pets & Livestock. Someone who can help you might be more likely to see your post. Good luck.

    I think you could probably get better information from a pet shop. I don't know how big that kind of lizard gets to be but, 2 gal. doesn't sound like much room. You can do a search for DIU incubators. Lots of people try their hand at making them.

    An Anole can live it a 2 gallon tank, but he/she would likely be more happy in a 5 gallon or larger tank, that affords more space to setup proper basking locations and offers a better degree of temperatures so they can better regulate their body heat...

    Going by when my son raised lizards, the 5 gallon tank MeepBeep suggested would be a better choice. That would give the anole more room for a waterer, rock or something to bask on and some room to run around.

    It's nice to have you here!
