Hi,

I work at a petstore, and last night while misting a cage that used to house longtails, along with anoles (only anoles are left now), i witnessed a tiny longtail emerge out of the foliage from the back of the tank, to lap up some water. My mouth jsut dropped. i couldn't believe it, it had been weeks since our last longtial had been sold. It was the last thing i expected to see. I quickly colected the little guy into a critter keeper, and later took him home. I put some flightless fruit flies in the cage for now, but it doesnt seem interested in them.

Does anyone know if these hatchlings will eat anything else at this young age? Fruit perhaps? Or babyfood? (i kno adults eat crickets, but i dont have pinheads, and i figure flightless fruit flies would be just as good.)

Also, i'm going to be keeping my eye out for more of these little guys in the anole cage, does anyone know about on avg. how many eggs a longtail will lay?

Thanks,

~Eric~
