I just recently purchased a Mali uromastyx. It is a girl, around 6 to 8 inches long, not sure on the age. I have a few questions about them.
1. I have converted my old fish tank, ( 16 inches deep, 20 inches tall, 37 inches long). I have about 2 inches of calcium sand, a den, a heat rock, a log going up to a stone under the heating light. I have one heat light and one uvb light. I have a infrared light to but I’m not sure if that is needed? My temp Gage reads out around 83 degrees with the lights on. It’s around 100 under the heating light and around 80 on the cool side. I am not sure how to get the temperature up because I am sure it is down to low for her.
2. I have had her for about 2 days and have not seem her eat at all. I have gotten her kelp, zucchini, carrots, and collared greens. But I’m not sure how to get her to eat? I’ve tried to put her near the food but it does not look as if she has eating.
3. I have gotten her from petsmart. They had her for over 5 months, she is very aggressive. I am sure it is because is was not handled much. What is the best way to get her to be more friendly?
