    Not a chance.
    They have different care requirements, not even close enough to risk it. Also, a very determined adult leo can attempt to eat the anole. You'd be surprised how big a prey item leos can eat if they want to. Even if he doesn't manage to eat her completely, he can cause fatal injuries.

    The only way to keep both species is to keep them in separate enclosures. Putting them in the same one is nothing short of animal abuse.

    Okay thank you, I was just wondering because I wanted to get one but I didn’t have much room to spare because I collect model horses and I have an Etsy shop so my room is always a mess. XD

    If you have trouble with space, maybe you should look into a sort of rack system? When each cage has its own level.

    Though I think it might be best to wait until you have the space to care for one. I know that they have very different humidity levels and I can’t imagine how you could keep them in the same room and keep each cage as a specific humidity.

    I’d also seriously urge you to do more research on both leos and anoles. I just googled care for anoles and it’s so radically different that I’m worried that you may have been either misinformed on the care of a Leo or you haven’t done much research into the care of a green alone.

    Finally, it seems to me like you want one just because. This may sound harsh, but if you want one just to have one... it might be better not to get it. When I purchased my first leopard gecko, it wasn’t just because I’d always loved reptiles. It was because I wanted a companion- someone who, while scaly and not exactly empathetic, would be there for me. My male was adopted without any desire for a new pet- but he was being housed with another male and I fell in love with him. So I adopted him. I’ve also seen pets who have been subjected to the “it looks cool so I want it!” Mentality, and it unfortunately seems like they eventually get shoved aside.

    Remember, your Leo is your pet. He depends on you. Please. Treat him well.
