    Default Polychrus marmoratus


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I just wanted to share some pics of my two pairs of Polychrus marmoratus I think their common name is monkey anoles; although they are not anoles but are closely related as both are in the subfamily Polychrotidae. I was also wondering if anyone else is working with this species or some others in the genus and would like to share info. enjoy!

    Plenty of personality!

    Hello I recently bought a polychrus marmoratus because I saw it at a store and I thought it would be easy to find information online... NOT! (stupid, I know)
    I was totally wrong... I'm from Panamá and I breed Iguanas and i thought that with my experience with those animals would be easy to keep this little boy (the polychrus marmoratus) in a better condition than those they kept him at the store.
    My question is: what do I have tyo know about them? temperature? water? feedin? at the time im feeding him two or 3 live grasshoppers with calcium and vitamins sprinkled over them and He is at a very humid aquarium not so big (about 30x15x18 inches) with a lot of branches, a little bush and a little water pond. I also placed a lamp with a 25 watts heating bulb at one of the corners over the bush

    Default Polychrus marmoratus

    I am not yet working with this species but I am very much interested in them. I have been researching information on them and I think they would make a great addition to my collection. Would like to know where I could get a couple of pairs or maybe even two trios. Write me back if you have any information that would help.

    Thanks

    They do well in big screen cage (60x60x120cm for a pair), furnished with branches, twigs and live plants (pothos, monstera, bromeliads..). A good and strong lighting is necessary, keep them at 25°c with a 35°c hot spot and spray them everyday. Wild animals don't drink in stagnant water so you will need to teach them (you can put water dishe in the higher part of the cage and drop water into it when the animals are close to it).
    They feed well on the usual insects, they are mainly passive hunter, most prefered items are grasshoppers and worms (wax, morios..). They also take various fruits (baby food, small piece of banana,peach etc).
    Female laid 7 eggs in the substrate in early spring (begining of the wet season after the drier season in autumn).

    They also (female especially) love snails, it provides them good amount of calcium
