preliminary information :
This is another exceptionally ubarwionych anolisów living Smaller Antilles in the Caribbean, maybe just the nicest. Naturally occurring on two islands Guadeloupe (Basse-Terre and Grande Terre) has been dragged to the French Guiana on the South American continent.
As for the subspecies at the moment they distinguish them six five occurs in Basse-Terre and two on Grande Terre ( A. m. Speciosus on both). The contact areas of the different subspecies occur mix, as evidenced by the appearance especially males. Previously considered subspecies present in the smaller islands in the vicinity of Guadeloupe was elevated to separate species ( A. ferreus , A. terraealtae , A.kahouannensis , A.chrysops , A.caryae and A.desiradei ).
Appearance male :
Depending on the subspecies, marbled pattern around the head and neck, or the front of the torso may be orange ( A. m. Marmoratus ), yellow-green or sometimes żółtoczarnozielone ( A. m. Girafus ). They can also be black round spots ( A. m. Alliaceus ), no such pattern at the head of a violet or bluish ( A. m. Setosus ) or the head bright light blue ( A. m. Speciosus ) or greyish ( A. m. Inornatus ). Base color of the body is in shades of green from glaring (as in A. m. Speciosus ) to pale gray (as in A. m. Inornatus ). Tail sometimes the color of the body, i.e. green, sometimes another example. Blue ( A. m. Marmoratus or A. m. Setosus ). As noted above, in the presence of several sub-species of animals are mixed coloration.
It reaches about 20 cm the total length is therefore comparable to the length A. roquet , but greater than A. trinitatis or A. gingivinus .
appearance of a female :
Females also colored differently, depending on the subspecies. Generally less colorful than males, less expressive patterns or lack thereof.
They grow to about 15 cm, somewhat more rarely, so they are considerably smaller than males (one-quarter length).
Anolisy they live on trees and shrubs, depending on the subspecies inhabit some of the higher parts of the trunks of trees and their crowns, others rather lower parts of tree trunks.
On the day of 24-28 ° C, a maximum radiator 35 ° C, night 20 ° C. In summer day should last about 14 hours, gradually shortened to 10 hours in winter. Then, too, for a period of about two months, you can lower the temperature day and night, in order to better reflect the natural conditions of the species. This helps stimulate the mating behavior, although it is not necessary.
In 60-70% of the day, at night to 90%. Although at a slightly lower humidity anolisy they are doing well.
Terrarium tropical vertical type properly ventilated. The more the better live plants, while the walls of cork sole discretion: they are not necessary, because these anolisy, and others besides, easily move around the vertical windows.
Appropriate size insects feed commercially available or meadow plankton. It also happens that they may be tempted to soft ripe pieces of fruit or fruit smoothies.
Lowering the temperature for a period of approximately two months helps stimulate mating behavior, although it is not necessary. Anolisy these, like other Caribbean, reproduce throughout the year if conditions are preserved "summer" without interruption. Eggs are deposited to the ground, so it is important to be moist. You can then transfer them to an incubator, but usually it is difficult to locate them without any problem and young stings in a terrarium. Young should bring up in smaller tanks with a design similar to the parents.
As outlined above, a period of about two months can lower the temperature at less active zeskutkuje lizards. It does not occur in them, however, wintering in the strict sense.
Your beautiful, bright coloring look best in bright light. Like all anolisów, there autotomy and significant aggression among males, so do not keep more than one male in the terrarium (unless it is very large and has several islands heating).
