Yea, given proper care they can live to about half of the lifespan of a Crestie -- I'm seeing 7-8 years compared to 15 or more. I may try some day to get some more Anoles and give them the proper care, I guess for the experience.
Yea, I like the faster, or at least more active, lizards myself; the Cresties at work are fast and they also jump a lot, but they're pretty young so I imagine that has a good deal to do with that. Anoles pretty much do that their entire lives (though I believe they slow down when they start getting old). Anoles can be hand-tamed (I did it with mine as a kid), but, as said, it seems it's not recommended to handle them very much.
that makes sense, my brother's GF had Anoles many years ago. they lived 3-5 yrs old. i dont mind small lizards but the slightly larger or atleast medium sized are better. i wouldnt want any large lizard due to space requirements. i also prefer something which doesnt tend to have escaping from larger creatures 80% of the time. i did have a thing for blue tongued but that was when i was living with my parents. since ive been living alone ive had the chance to get the 2 CTs and gecko. id love another crestie but no space to put a proper tank, not even a 20g.
i got some crickets for my gecko 2 days ago, i bought 23, fed 6 right away and another 2 tonight. i got most of the adults fed but one noisy bugger remained. 1 day of full volume scrieching was enough as it was only 1 suspect for the time being. i got 10 left alive atm.
