>>Wow that does look just like him. Thank you so much! I really appreciate your help. Do you think I could move up to a 55 gallon instead or is that going to be too hard to heat?

bigger is better (up to a point).

The goal with any enclosure is to create different zones.

Direct a heat lamp at a pile of rocks to create a hot spot of about 95. The area around that will be in the 80s, and the rest of the tank will be closer to room temperature. This way the lizard can warm up and cool down by moving around the tank. This is actually easier to do in a larger tank. You could also include plants and branches into the tank with the extra space.
