I'm currently setting up a habitat for a Hybrid Cayman/Cuban. Sorry to keep bringing this up but the only way I can sort of feel my way around the care for a Cyclura is to match information against what I use for my Green Iguana. For my Green Ig the substrate is pretty much boring old Astroturf as my lizard only comes down to floor level to scratch at the door to get out (she does this if she wants more attention after being handled a long time and liking it) or to poop. Of course if she was gravid I would set up for that at ground level of the enclosure. The rest of the time she spends up on various basking spots off the ground. I am assuming Cyclura (Hybrid Lewisi) may spend more time on the ground. Are enclosures usually including sand, decomposed granite, big rocks, palm trees, along with basking spots that are common for green iguanas? Horizontal surfaces made of wood so the lizard can lay flat and get sun or UVB, I imagine are equally important. The information I saw already is posted on Cyclura.com and it sounds ideal. I I do have a good idea from what I am reading on www.cyclura.com but I am just cross-referencing as a lot of you I bet have the ideal setups for your exotic lizards already.
PS By the way I took someone’s advice to look up www.weather.com to find the current temps in George Town, Cayman Islands – what a simple and perfect way to gauge gradient temperatures and night-time temperatures. The basking temps will be higher. Now if I can just get the money together to go check the weather there in person! I hear it’s an amazing place especially if you like diving and of course Cyclura.
