- Hi. We have 2 anoles that are about a year old. They have both
developed red, raised spots all over them. One looks like it does
not feel well, the other one has the spots, but seems fine. Does
anyone know what it is? How to treat? Any info would be helpful.
- Look at the spots under slight magnification. If they move they are mites and can be treated easily. If they aren't mites, see a good herp vet.
- Thanks. I hate to sound like an idiot, but what is a herp vet?

- Hi there, "herp' is just short for Herpetologist; Herpetology is the
study of living (as opposed to extinct) reptiles and amphibians. "Vet" is short
for veterinarian. Not all veterinarians are knowledgeable as to the medical
needs of lizards and other reptiles. Perhaps someone on this list knows of an
herp vet in your area - good luck!
