Hey I was in at my LPS and they are cleaing out 50% off all lizards and accessories..they have a long tailed grass lizard going cheap..problem is.. he's missing his front left leg..they never even noticed
But he doesn't seem to be suffering.. I watched him catch and consume a cricket bigger then his head while I was there..
Anyone have any thoughts on this? He probably needs a good home.. but I know very little about this species...has anyone raised any? how are their lighting requirements, basking areas, humidity, feeding, etc?
The missing leg wound looks old it appears to be grown over and not fresh, so they suspect he was like that before he came to their store.
He's currently housed with 2-3 anoles in a 15 gallon tank at the store, not counting tails they are all about the same size.
