Yesterday night I was given an adult plated lizard by a girl who decided that it wasn't cool enough for her. It was given to me in a cage that is 12X30 inches, with a hot rock, cedar chips, large water dish, and a half-log. The first thing I did was get rid of the cedar(I lost a few fence lizards to cedar a few years ago). So its now being kept on paper as a substrate until I can get some sand. Are there any substrates that would be better that sand? I'm kinda worried about it being on the hot rock, but it dosn't seem that hot. Is the hot rock ok? The cage seems a little small, but for now, its the biggest I have. Is there an easy way to sex plated lizards? I don't know what species it is, but its scales are very strongly keeled and its plain brown with two very faint stripes going down its back. Also, if anyone has any experience with breeding crickets, any information would be appriciated. Thank-you!
