Hi, I got a pair of japalura splendida a few months ago, and I believe the female is gravid. I don't know a lot about their personal histories, as they were rescues, but they seem to be in good health. I wasn't sure if they mated readily in captivity, but the female's ever-growing belly suggests that they have. I have also witnessed some courtship behavior (head-bobbing, chasing, and dewlaps being displayed), but the male is pretty shy and usually hides when I come and watch. The female is less high strung.

I have never bred lizards, only snakes, and I'm not sure what I should do for her. So far, I've just increased the frequency with which I dust her crickets. She has a great appetite. Does she need a nesting box with humidity? Right now she's being kept on bed-a-beast, and has a couple cork bark hides on the ground. Again, I'm a complete novice when it comes to these lizards, so any help would be appreciated.
