First of all, it can be nursed back to health, but it takes work and you have toi start NOW. I had one for a few years after it had hitchhiked from FL to IL and was stuck in a closet for over 3 weeks with no food or water.

They will 'not' drink any water from a dish. Put in some plastic plants and spray water on them with a bottle or dripper. They lap up droplets of water from leaves and things. It's the only way they drink.

Get some waxworms from a pet shop or bait shop. Cut small pieces and hold the cut end to the mouth with tweezers until it gets a bit of a taste.

It could start lapping up the liquid that's coming out. Waxworms are very fatty (not the best 'longterm' food) and almost irresistable to Anoles. The fat will quickly build it up.

There's a lot more to learn, but the above info is more urgent for now. Here's a link that tells more.

Good luck,
