I just got back last month from a trip to Big Bend to see cactus blooms, and it made me think about getting desert lizards.
Yeah, that is one of the main reasons I ended up getting some. I grew up in west Texas, and Big bend used to be our old stomping ground when I was a kid...
:1. Is 1/4" mesh okay for a lid, or can crickets climb up 24" of glass readily?
:2. Using two 36" UVB bulbs in addition to basking lamps, and providing the right temperature gradients, feeding, etc. should I expect collared lizards to keep good green color or do I have to be somehow really really lucky? I'm wondering if I should get aquaflames or something.
The cage sounds really good. The only things I have had climb the glass have been waxworms. I would suggest buying the best possible aquaflames you can locate, if you want to have the best odds for good color. Color is tough to predict, though.
