Hello,

I have a pair of these beautiful lizards (hopefully 1,1) in a large glass tank. They have a temperature gradient from 95 to 80, and some good hide spots. I let night temps drop to 70 or even down to 66F if my house ambient temp gets that low. For temperature control I have Spyder Robotics with Night Drop, which is I guess about as good a thermostat as you can get for these small enclosures. I keep them on the end table next to my easy chair. It has been interesting watching them grow up and learn how to hunt larger prey, and get their dominance issues settled. They are a very friendly - to each other - pair. I'm happy about that. They hide a lot, but when they are out they sometimes throw their legs back, so I know that at least they can relax in the setup I gave them. I think I've figured out that they will never be tame to my hand.

I have a question. Do they need to be on some kind of dirt or soil substrate so they can dig? I don't see any indication of that, I'm just wondering.

Roger
