Japaluras are classified as mountain dragons.Not a lot is known about their habitat as of the printing of the Agamid book I have. Some species are arborial and some are terrestrial living in grassy or rocky landscapes. They do come from mountainous regions where the temperature falls substantially at night. The most commonly seen in the pet trade is the splendida. This is an upland species and the book suggests that it may live on trees or rocks. They are a warmth-loving species but no temperature range is given. They suggest a dry forest or cloud-forest terrarium and overwintering. This information is from 'Agamid Lizards' by Ulrich Manthey and Morbert Schuster.

Hope this and anything the search turns up is helpful.
