Scott,

You've essentially created one of the key elements of Plated Lizard habitat - rock crevices. In the wild nearly all of the Plated species occupy rocky outcrop type habitats where they retreat into crevices at the sight of predators or at night when the temperatures drop and the rocks are still holding radiant heat from the day. I think some kind of rock-work structure is essential to any captive Plated habitat. How is the new G. validus doing?
