As for cage set up here it goes. A 30-40 gallon tank for 1-3 adults. The substrate should be coco bark or something similair. Have many hiding spots and climbing branches in the tank since these lizards are often found in and around tree stumps and/or loose bark. They shold have a 4inch or so waterbowl. Keep the humiidity at 60% or so. Also spray the enclosure daily. They require full spectrum lighting. The cool side should be around 85 degrees and the hot spot should be 115 or a bit higher. At night the tank should be around 65-75. If you want to breed them hibernate them for 6 weeks at 50-65 degrees. They give birth to live fully formed young.
