Hello All,

My daughter and I purchased a plated lizard at a recent local herp show. We are successfully keeping a Mali Uro and a bearded dragon, along with my herd of torts/box turtles and my colubrids. It was kind of an impulse buy, but the price was cheap and the lizard was very cool. We did get information from the vendor who stated they were omnivorous, and ate canned foods, veggies, insects. Sounded similar to bearded care, so we took the plunge. It is about two feet long and was sold as a giant plated. I belive it is G. major. It is housed in a 36x18 cage on alfalfa pellets. The hot side is around 95 degrees. We have had the lizard for five days now and does not appear to be feeding. It stays on the cool side of the cage even after reducing the wattage of bulb and sleeps alot. Any suggestions?? I am fearful of its survival similar to a WC uro we bought at the same show last year from a different vendor. Our CB uro is doing great. Are these WC lizards sensitive and difficult like WC uros??

Thanks all
KevinM
