The horizontally situated vivarium with a rocky interior should be maintain as a high tropical vivarium, no lower than 65% humidity and best in the 70% with peaks in the 80%. Next, light intensity during the day is incredible where the barbouri is from, interrupted occasionally by clouds. When the sun comes out it is very hot and very bright, so we need intense light (UV lights do not put out intense lights - so make sure there is another lighting source) and a hot basking spot. At night temperatures drop almost to the frost line during the winter. So temperatures should be in the low 90s for basking, mid 80's for the rest of the enclosure, and a night drop to the very low 70s.

When not breeding, barbouri tend to get overweight, so keep them lean - crickets twice weekly and fruit once weekly, all with supplements. Breeding females need a different food schedule.
