I am likely getting a pair of Zonosaurus karsteni next week, and am having a very hard time finding care info, and least very little in English. Is anyone familiar with this species, or a similar species from a similar environment? Anyone have a sense of their temperaments?

Here is what I have gathered and what I assume. It is a semi desert species, so I would keep the viv dry. It likes to burrow, so a mix of sterile potting and a bit of sand?
Viv size: Min. 36x18 (lizards reach 10-13 inches?)
UVB: High ( I would use a Mercury Vapor bulb)
Basking Surface temps 105-115
Temp gradient 75-85, night 70-75
Diet, omnivorous, gut loaded insects, veggies and fruit, cal/vit suppliments

Is there anything that I am missing?
