The only reason there is no dew-flap displaying, or fighting here (even female will do this in the wild!) is that in such an overcrowded area there is no chance of setting up a real territory, so the anoles are forced to "deal with it." This kind of forced repression of natural dominance relationships can lead to stress.

Also, with that many anoles in a small enclosure, it is almost inevitable that fecal contamination will occur, and at least one, if not all could die of parasitic loads too high for their system to handle.

Just my thoughts on that "cute" pic
