Wait. Feeder lizards, what?

Ok. I've heard of feeder fish, no big deal. Feeder chickens/birds, for those large birdivorous snakes, sure no problem. Rats, mice are staples, ok. But FEEDER LIZARDS? Can somebody explain to me what would eat a lizard, and why it would be better than a bird/mammal/etc.? i just can't visualize something eating an anole unless it was some sort of large mammal/bird, like a pig...or a dog/cat.

So many fish to keep, not enough aquaria.

I would think the main place they end up is food for snakes. Any Python/Boa
that has the name "Tree" in the front of it's name will eat them.
Don't forget a 10' snake starts out at about 15" long. Then they would look for
something smaller than a chicken.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

I don't even wan to guess how many geckos my one cat eats in a day. Doesn't seem to make a dent in how many you see on the outside walls and gutters. At least he doesn't eat birds and fish, and sleep indoors every night.

Chinese water dragons, monitors, pac man frogs, basilisks, etc. will eat anoles. Last time I was in Florida I saw a large anole eat a small anole.
