:I've never seen an Anolis swallowd there substrate.
It's happened. More so with smaller substrates such as tiny gravels and sand.

:Btw for the people that use all types of paper towels, bark and other substrate thats need to be cleaned every week/month... Cleaning his tank, say 'changing' his tank will totaly stres your anole
Indeed. But the stress factor that I encountered when doing my regular cleaning was typically negligible. Any reptile's cage needs to be kept sanitary and clean. Unlike in the wild, things do not recycle and regrow. It's a captive environment with no true ecosystem, no homeostasis. Too many ailments and problems can be associated with unsanitary enclosures...
