if I was living in the tropics, id modify my cages so they have plenty ventilation at night and place the cages where thers a slow breez, these lizards use the wind-moisture to lower ther metabolism. my cages are adapted to my climate and may not work for you?

dont worry about humidity, 40% to 80% is an exelent range, stress is much more of an enemy to these lizards then humidity is. acanthosaurus are prety dumb and soon forget the handling if you feed them afterwards, however all gonos and hipsylurus should not be handled nor should they be housed in groups or anywhere they can see eatch other, they are display lizards that will signal each other across the room, in such cases domination is anavoidable and lower ranking lizards will perish as if housed together.

use a feeding bowl until your lizards feeds in your presence.

sorry I cant recieve any PM but I will soon have an email of my own.
