I'm quite new to all reptiles really, and just began the hobby 3 weeks ago today. I've had all types of exotic tropical fish over the past 13 years, and decided to move on to something new.

I've always had a passion for reptiles, but never actually got one. 3 weeks ago I bought my first - A female Rainbow Uromastyx.

Today I bought my second, a Madagascan Four Lined Plated Lizard. He's almost a foot in length, and is doing well. I was told they eat some veggies, and crickets with cricket dust. I threw some crickets in tonight after I brought him home, and he hunted them down quickly.

The tank temperature is at about 90F.

Does anyone have any care tips for this species? Anything at all would be appreciated. I have been researching them for the past few days, but haven't found very much. I have a few books I've also been looking through, but haven't found much either.

Thank you,
Cory
