Im not sure about Beach sand... I have never tried it! The salt from the saltwater might be a problem. Im not sure if it would harm a AL, but it sure wouldnt smell good :)
Another thing, make sure you have a seperate cage to store your crickets in. Never allow crickets to roam freely around the Alligator Lizard's cage if he doesn't eat them. I once had a smaller lizard that had his leg chewed off by a cricket. He was much smaller than a alligator lizard, but I still wouldnt take any chances. The crickets might cause harm to him. If the lizard does not eat the crickets within a few hours, then I would take them out.
When you said the 2nd photo in the picture gallery, were you talking about the picture in the Free Photo Gallery in this web page? That is the picture I took :) That is a picture of one of my 3 Alligator lizards that I have right now.
If your lizard is the same type I have, then he will get about 12-20 inches long (depending on wether he lost his tail or not) Mine is 12 inches long because he appears to have lost his tail sometime before I caught him. His tail is only half the length of his body. Normally their tails can get twice as long as their body length.
I don't know any specific links to other web pages about Alligator Lizards, but you can go to http://www.google.com/ and type in "alligator Lizard" in the search, and you will get plenty of web pages with care sheets, and information about Alligator Lizards.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. I don't mind answering questions about Alligator Lizards :)
