Here is a copy of my correspondence with the seller so far. He responded very quickly, so I'm hoping for a second reply tomorrow.

Hello,

I saw your ad on Kingsnake, and was curious if I could house a single armadillo,or better yet a pair in a 20 gallon aquarium? I've only found 2 very poor care sheets on these guys. One said a 20 is fine, the other said 29 minimum for a single animal. I have a friend who had some as a kid, and absolutely loved
them. The fact that you have gravid females is also very appealing, especially since they give live birth. What a fabulous little critter. Any information you can provide would be great.

Thanks,
Alinda Buckingham

They are very social lizards they do well in pairs and groups but also do well in single animal setups. I don't think anything larger than a 20 gallon is necessary for up to 4 of these guys. I recommend cypress mulch or equivalent substrate lots of uv light as well as much crickets and daily misting. If there is any more specific information that you require let me know ASAP...

Do a google search for cordylus species. It seems like their requirements only vary slightly. From what I've found, the ones he's selling are a semi-arboreal species, and need a more tropical setup rather than a desert setup.

If I learn anything more, I will post it.

Oh, what were they selling for at the show, do you remember? These are the only ones I've ever seen for sale, so I have no idea if its a good price or not. It sounds reasonable to me for a small/medium lizard, but I have nothing to compare it with...
