Anoles are a small - medium sized arboreal reptile ranging from just a few inches up to 22 inches. They range from North America - Asia. They are a very common reptile specie as they can be very affordable. They come in multiple different colors and through selective breeding; morphs are now available throughout the reptile hobby. Anoles range from climates that are hot with minimal shrubbery - very hot and damp rainforest climates. The most common anole being the green anole, they are often seen looking brown, as the pigments in the skin can lighten and darken depending on mood, stress and temperature.

How can you tell a male lizard from a female lizard?

This depends on the type of lizard it is, but there are some general rules that apply to many species.

Female lizards tend to be longer and slimmer than males, lighter in weight, and have a smaller head than the males. In some species, the male is more brightly coloured, in order to attract the female, and often certain markings such as coloured throats will become more pronounced in colour during breeding season.

When looking at the underside of the lizard, males have a small bulge between the end of the abdomen and the tail. Also, the appearance of the femoral pores is different. Femoral pores are small openings lining the bottom of a lizard's legs. In males, they are located near the bulge at te base of the tail, generally in a 'V' shape, and darker in colour than the surrounding scaly skin. Female femoral pores cannot be seen as easily.

Why does notebook screen change colors to mostly green?

Could be bad LCD screen, defective video cable or bad motherboard.

First, test the laptop with external monitor. If video on the external monitor is normal but it's bad on the laptop LCD, the problem is somewhere inside the laptop display panel (bad LCD, bad video cable, bad connection between cable/motherboard/LCD).

If video on the external monitor is bad too, you have either software related problem or something is wrong with the motherboard. Try reinstalling Windows first, it might help.

Botany or Plant Biology

Why do leaves look green?

The green color in leaves is caused by the presence of a compound called "chlorophyll," which the plant produces to do photosynthesis, which is how plants get energy from sunlight. The purpose of chlorophyll is to assist the plant in making food for itself by utilizing energy from sunlight and nutrients from the soil.

The chlorophyll is green because it absorbs red and blue wavelengths of light -- and so green is not absorbed and is reflected, making the plant look green to your eyes. Non-transparent things are the color they are because that is the color that is NOT absorbed -- the color you see is the color that is reflected... which is why you see it!

There are two basic ways by which we can see colors. Either an object can directly emit light waves in the frequency of the observed color, or an object can absorb all other frequencies, reflecting back to your eye only the light wave, or combination of light waves, that appears as the observed color. For example, to see a yellow object, either the object is directly emitting light waves in the yellow frequency, or it is absorbing the blue part of the spectrum and reflecting the red and green parts back to your eye, which perceives the combined frequencies as yellow.

My anole lizard always puffs out his neck. Is that normal?

Yes, that is very normal. That is way to know if an anole is a male, if it shows a red neck flap. It uses that to attract females. He must have saw him self in a mirror and thought he was another female lizard.

Can anoles live with other lizards?

Anoles are solitary animals in the wild and they don't need companions or friends. Its best to keep one anole lizard by itself then with another anole.

No two different species of lizards should ever be housed together. It is dangerous to their health. Disease spreads easier to different species and its common that they will fight.

If you must have another lizard housed with an anole then a house gecko would be the best. They are very similar in size and requirements. Be sure to do research on both before hand though.
