Hi there:

I have kept these guys. They like a dry vivarium, preferrably a large one, so that they can glide about. I highly recommend that you use a tall vivarium. For a substrate use a layer of pebbles, topped with sandy soil. Do not mist too much. Give them plenty of places to hide in, like artificial rock dens, half-coconuts, shingles and pieces of stacked cork.
Also give them sturdy branches or rocks that have been siliconed together. They love small trees like weeping fig and fiscus, for which you may need full-spectrum lighting.
Create a basking spot of about 90 degrees farenheit, with the cooler side at about 76 degrees farenheit. A shallow water dish and light mistings are a good idea. Offer them flightless fruit flies, small crickets, wax worms and nectar. Mine bred under these conditions. The female laid two eggs, which never hatched. The adults died after about 2 years in my care. These lacertas really have personality!
