    Try making friends with an offer of waxworms or silkworms. Mine will take those from my hand.

    Just be sure they are very small ones if you try them.

    Ha! I had the exact same reaction when I was first introduced to my brown anole. It imazes me how suspicious those tiny lizards can appear, and they actually look you in the eye while being spastically paranoid.

    i got them to eat, and man do they eat, i feed each about 2 mealworms a day and a couple of pinheads.....then two sprays of water, one in the morning and then in the evening, its cool watching them lap the water, but even cooler to see them stalk a mealworm or pinhead that doesnt know whats coming.....i also spray the bugs with calcium.....i love these little guys....
