I acquired a water dragon yesterday through a man who could no longer care for the lizard...(i.e. rescue)

From what the man told me about the WD, it is an adult male, appx. 10 years old.

i have NO idea what locality he is...i will post pictures later today or tomorrow...

he is about 4ft...HUGE. green with black banding on the tail and a bright pink throat...

he is a little wiggly, but not as much as i had thought...

i have never owned a water dragon before, so is there anything i should know right off the bat?

i have done some reading...as well as asking the man who owned him everything he knew...

he is in a 5ft tall x 3ft x 3ft custom cage...and i will be building him a new one in the near future...(any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!)

is there any food he should NOT get...i know they are omnivores, so i am more concerned about plant matter (fruits & veggies)...i know he should get mealworms, crix, mice, etc....

is there anything i should look out for?

i am primarily a snake keeper...so lizards are not exactly my strong point...

however, this guy is extremely cool and very interesting...

i want him to have the best i can provide for him!

thanks so much!
jessica
