Frillies need a tall set-up so I would go with at least 4'Hx 3'-4'Lx2'-3'D. Give them some nice basking spots with temp ranging from 80-110F. A variety of cricket,pinks,superworms,silkworms, and my favorite roaches is a good diet. Very few frilleds with actually eat greens. I mist mine almost every night and usually dump some water over their heads from a bottle. I also try a give the adults a bath every few weeks. Also your frilled didn't drop its tail, it must have been bitten off a a baby or been hurt in some way. Frilled do not have the ability to detach their tails and like beardies can't grow missing parts back. Sometimes when shedding or just for no reason the stop feeding. I usually don't get concerns unless their weight starts dropping. If they don't eat for a week its always good to soak them and raise the temps. Otherwise they are not to hard to care for and can be a very fun pet.


:im just starting working at a vet/herp store. and they have a new manager they has said i can HAVE their frilled dragon. their gonna just give it to me. i had come in MANY times b4 with my tegu and others herps. so they new me. the reason they are giving it to me is he says this animal needs care that he thinks no one esle will give him. it his perfectly healthy and TAME. the new manager is a very nice man. now i know somewhat about them. but not tons and not as muchn as i need. so if yall could tell me what humidity heat water area and all that. and some pics of cages iw ould REALLY appreciate it. oh and it is an Aussie silver phase. not saure of its length a good part of its tail fell. but i would say like 15in and 20in if it had the whole thing thx guys
