Finlly, a question I can answer. I've had one for about 4 years. Whatever size he is, that's probabl;y about as big as he will get. About 6 inches max. They eat crickets for sure although if he's like mine, he will eat anything. Just go down to your local pet store or bait store and ask for crickets. He'll need a tank, basking spot and some sort of substrate. Sand has worked out best for me. You should get a thermometer but he will regulate himself really. See that spot on the back of his head? That's "his" thermometer. So just pick up a heat lamp. A 10 gallon tank will probably be fine. He'd love a 20 but whatever you wanna do. And if you got stuck with him, give him a chance, you'll get attached like I did. Good luck!
: i "inherited" one by accident you could say, but i dont know anything about them , from how big they get, what they eat, and what to keep them in
