Hello, Forum Members,

Is there anywhere here who has Jeweled Lacertas? I'm very seriously considering getting a male and female from Bert at Agama International, but wanted to ask some questions first.

The first question concerns their relative tameness. I have read a lot of different things about this quality in these particular lizards. Some say they get very tame and can be easily handled, while others say they are skittish/flighty and often bite. As always, I'm sure there is considerable differences in individuals, and how much proper handling they receive.

Second: just what is the right minimum tank/cage size for a pair of these animals?

Third: will they take anything other than live prey for food? I'm thinking of supplementing with a very high-grade, natural cat food like Natural Balance (which has worked wonders in my Irian Jaya BTS).

Thank you.

Oghmius
