: I very seriously doubt that the N. All. Lizard would fare will in your region. In reality, it is not a good idea to try an transplant non-native species. Our various state wildlife agencies have done quite a bit of this over the years with some successes but some disasters as well.

: You should contact your state's wildlife agency to determine the legality of such a venture, even for you native species of lizards. R. F. Hoyer

: : I live in southern IL in the USA.
: : My yard is mainly partially shaded due to trees but I have
: : a well drained SW side that is fenced in.
I am not releasing anything in the wild
but rather setting up an outdoor enclosure.
I have made all measures possible to ensure
it is escape proof the only problem is whether
it gets enough sunlight for most species or not is in question.

: : I was wondering how you think a n.alligator lizard might fair
: : here and what provisions I would have to make to "fix" climatic differences. How much time do these guys need to bask, I have not used native lizards because I dont know if theyd get enough sun and Ive always read the n alligator lizards stay on the cooler side
