Hi Tom, J. splendida is a central China agamid lizard, I kept a few before in Hong Kong (southern China) with no problem, all did fine. Yes you suspicion is correct, the pet shop is bullshxting you. J. splendida come from a northernmost subtropical/southern temperate region, where the summer is 24-26C and winter drop down to snowing and it goes into hibernation. Imagine it something actually like southern Germany. The humidity will not be too high, 60-70% is alright, of course the occasional spraying (twice a week)helps animals to shed their shin. keep it 22-26C daytime & 20-22 nighttime during summer,a UVB tube and a mild basking spot (max. 30C), put them in hibernation over winter. The animal are hillside tree-climbing species, they hide in boxes during the day sometimes. Provide climbing facility, hiding places, and always clean drinking water because they drink quite a lot (although prefer licking water droplets). Feed on insects (crickets, grasshoppers & mealworms). The boy has a relatively much larger head and the cloaca (vent) region is swollen. Hope it helps.
