 Anole avoiding basking place

My anole has been avoiding his warmest spot, he used to hang out there all the time, I noticed it after his mate died, he only went on it 2 or 3 times since, maybe it reminds makes him remember her and make him sad, the old one spent most of its life in that tree. Any help is appreciated!




Anole lover07- thank you AmbuBager for giving me answers to all of this

Sorry for not replying sooner, work has been hectic! Maybe you can give the tank a thorough cleaning and rearrange things in there, so when you return your green anole it’ll be a different environment for him. Usually we don’t think of lizards being complex enough to process things like the death of a tank mate, but losing the brown anole was certainly a change in the routine-- maybe the green anole feels like something is different and that the current environment "just isn’t the same". So, try moving things around and also changing the angle of the light, it may help get his mind off of things for a while...
