Hi,

thats definitely a butterfly agama and istd NOT the belliana species. IŽd say it should be reveesii, but maybe also another Leuiolepis species.
Anyhow, these lizards are extremly quick and agile and hence need giant tanks in comparison tio their size. They are the closest relatives to the Uromastyx and as those need very hot temps to reach full activity levels and to be able to digest their food properly. As Uros they are great diggers and need a thick substrate layer since they dig tunnels of several feet wehre they spend the night. Unlike for Uros their should be a moister place in the tank and also unlike Uros they are only in part vegetarian and need a good percentage of live food.

Hope that helps

Ingo
