O.k., I've wrassled plenty of adult anoles, and only a few have been maimed (I always try to get them out of the house without hurting them); however, I have a baby living in my entertainment center. I'd like to get it out without injury, but it's tiny.

Any suggestions?

Try putting a mild light where he can get to it and he might go there. If your house is cold he's not going to move because he's cold blooded. If he won't go to the light try shining it on him somehow then. (tomorrow during the day)

Aww, Muggy you are so sweet. I try to save them, too.
Those baby lizards are everywhere these days, can't walk down the sidewalk without them scuttling to and fro.

How do they get into your house? I would investigate that as well so you stop having that problem. We have so many outside, but none have ever gotten in...they don't even get into our enclosed pool area. I would investigate the cause of the problem as well.

It ran through an open door. Not a regular problem.

Put a potted plant near the spot where your little lizard is hanging out. He'll recognize the plant as "home" and climb right in. Then carefully pick up the plant, put it outside, and shoo the little guy out. We used to get lizards in our house all the time when we lived in Florida, and this trick worked every time. Good luck!

I have a butterfly net to catch the little creatures so I can return them to the outdoors. I also use it for the occasional frog that gets in.

In the cooler weather, I leave the sliders open to the screened in lanai so they come in that way.
