ok, this may be offensive to some herpers....

but what i did with a lizard eating species, was to boil a hot pot of water.....once it reaches boiling point, throw in a couple adult anoles....and then within a second they are no longer living.....
Take them out, chop them up....and throw there body parts back in the boiling water and let it boil for a 1/2 hour or so.....

U now have Anole Stock!!!
Sounds gross and may make some ppl sick to there stomach but this is the easiest way of going about it...

I tried keeping anoles for this peticular use, instead of having to kill them....
But they just eat TOO MANY darn crickets....

So u basically freeze the stock in a container....and whenever u want to feed ur snake, take it out early that morning and let it thaw.....i like to warm the stock up in the microwave before dipping the pinky in it...
Then ya refreeze it till the next feeding, i got my amazon off anole scented pinkies after 4 feedings

As i said, not everyone can sacrifice the lizards life for snakes, but ill tell ya somethin....

That lizard scented crap on the market doesn't work!.
