Re: [anole] sexual maturity ?
- Dear Ms. Jessup:Practically all anoles reach maturity within a year, and most, like A. carolinensis, within just a few months.Since even neonate anoles avoid each other in the wild, you might as well separate them as soon as possible, until the sexual characteristics develop and you know who's what.In Domino,Father Sánchez"Some ideas are so incredibly stupid

The other two are in a ten gallon, because of age and size difference. It would really help if someone could help with a time frame when I need to make sure females and males are seperated. I really don't want siblings producing any young. Is it ture that males loose the white stripe down their back and if they do at what age?you thinkYou think a grown woman would have known what causes babies and avioded this in the first place, although it has been alot of fun watching the young.Thanks in advance for any response.Monica
