Some of you may remember me from my previous post about an outdoor enclosure.
I've been debating on getting a chuck for awhile now and I've decided to take the plunge.
I have some questions I hope you all can help me with and I'll try to keep them to the point.
I have a tank that's 5'1" long 1'4" wide and 2'2" high.
Is this large enough for chucks?
if so is it good for just one or could I manage to keep a pair in there?
I read some where that cinder blocks make good shelter and basking areas do you all agree?
I plan to light the tank with a mercury vapor bulb
I'm leaning towards a mega ray what do you guys think?
I heard that S. Hispidus get larger than the U.S. locales also that they are the best tempered is this true?
Also do they have any special needs as far as diet goes?
I know that they eat the same basic plant matter as iguanas.
and is there anything else I should know about that aren't on the caresheets?
thanks everyone
