AA reader Ava writes: “Ironic that on Easter, I found myself on an egg hunt and found a green anole egg that I suspected had just been laid. She would have laid it last night. I put it in a cricket keeper (covered big holes), included the very soil the egg had been laid in and placed the keeper back in the main terrarium in the area where I had found it.
I read, afterward, that the position of the egg should not be disturbed. I fear I may have shifted it around in transfer. Have I blown it? Can one tell which end is up?
I live in Florida where the ‘takeover’ of the brown Bahamian anoles has been increasingly apparent. The ‘greenies’ as we call them have taken to the trees, but seem fewer every year. The browns are so aggressive. My hope is to ‘repopulate’ a certain mango tree where we used to see them. Pointless? Anyone?
