I have not been keeping up on the forums and have not seen the posts on this beautiful lizard. I have contacted kingsnake about posting a care sheet on them and have posted a pic of a female since none seemed to be available. This is info from my experiance with them:

Heating: Tree Dragons enjoy almost room temperature weather, the ideal basking temp is 75°-80° Fahrenheit. The ambient temperature should be from the low to mid 70's. The quickest way to kill a Japalura Splendida is to over heat it. Several exhibitors at a reptile show ask me how mine were so healthy and they could not even keep them. It turned out they were heating them as a tropical lizard and I was only using a UVB and no heat.

Humidity: They enjoy and thrive in a very humid environment. A large water dish is required as well as multiple spray bottle mistings per day or an ultrasonic mister. They love to gather in a big water dish and will stay in there a long time, all lined up around the edge. My wife calls it a “hot tub party”.

If you would like a copy of my care sheet please email me at vin-exo@sbcglobal.net. My customers who are using this to care for their pets are having good sucess so if it is not 100% accurate it is close.
