In Reply to: WHAT IS A GREEN AMEVA AND HOW DO YOU CARE FOR? posted by BOAS-N-BURMS on August 31, 2002 at 19:58:09:
There are some monitors that look similar when they are small. This is a pic of an ameiva I once had.
There's a good basic care sheet at http://www.reptileallsorts.com/ameiva-cs.htm. They can be shy and fast, and also may bite. They do best if left alone and kept in a well-planted large terrarium with plenty of hiding places and good vertical space, good humidity, UVB and heat. They are carnivorous - insects and pinky mice are a good diet.
