no nesting box!
these are shalow nesters and will nest in damp bed a beast or in my case shagnum moss, 3-4in deep is plenty.

The best advice I can offer for anyone working with forest agamids, is to keep in mind these lizards will nest where the sun will heat the eggs at least part of the after-noon, so they need to reach 84-86f and then drop to 75-68f at night, without such gradiant many will not thrive or will have weak babies if not dead unhatched.

my hipsylurus where doing bad, slugish and not feeding befor I adopted these temps, now they do very well and produce strong babies.
in comparaison to hipsylurus your dragons are a walk in the park, so you should have good results at these temps.
