:Sceloporus undulatus, not sure what subspecies lives in Missouri. They are fairly easy to take care of. They mature out at about 4" snout-vent length, plus another 5-6" of tail. They need at least a 20 gallon long tank, a good UVB fluorescent bulb (like Repti-sun's 5.0), an incandescent basking light, water bowl, driftwood or tree limbs to climb on, a few rocks to bask on, and substrate for the bottom. I personally like ESU Jungle Mix lizard litter and use it in my Sceloporus tank.

:They will eagerly eat large crickets and waxworms. About every 3rd meal, sprinkle some calcium powder for reptiles on the crickets before feeding.

Thanks so much for the info. As I began passing information on to my foster son he decided to let it go!. Oh well, probably better back in it's own environment. Thanks again!
