Years Experience:

N/A

Species:

Yellow Throated Plated Lizard

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

N/A

Sexing and Characteristics:

They are brown with red or orange on their sides. They have 2 very distinct lines running all the way down their back. They have rather weak looking limbs. They have little flaps of skin on the sides of their body (for expansion).

Mostly Active During:

Day

Substrate and Water Needs:

A mixture of calci-sand and coconut husk. You can find it at your local petsmart. It is "premium forest blend". Read the back of it to be sure you notice those key words.... mixture of--- calci-sand, coconut husk, and don’t forget to look for "forest blend".....I forget what it is called. It is something by ZooMed or maybe T-Rex. But you can see that there is sand in it. It is NOT just bark. That would make their burrowing hard. THEY ARE BURROWING LIZARDS! You need water dish that is clean everyday and is big enough for the lizard to get into it.

Lighting and UVB:

I use a 100 basking light and a 50 or 75 watt UVB light during the day. At night: a night-time bulb of 75 watt. THIS IS FOR A CAGE THAT IS 20 GALLONS! OKAY?

Temperatures and Humidity:

I don’t take temperature’s I just keep the lights the way they should be and everything is fine.

Heating and Equipment:

NEVER USE HEATING ROCKS! an under tank heater may be provided at night. however i don’t use one.

Caging Provided:

20 gallon. BE SURE TO HAVE A HIDE IN THERE! and maybe a fake plant or two!

Diet:

Omnivorous

Description of Diet:

Crickets. And fruits sometimes they eat veggies. depends on the lizard. don’t freak out if they don’t eat fruits or veggies. my baby loves applesauce and mushed up bananas. :) They eat mealworms and wax worms and superworms as well. However only provide them as a treat once in a while because not only are they fattening they may go on a strike and "demand" only mealworms and wax worms. So there ya go.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Dust your crickets with reptile calcium dust.

Maintenance:

Clean the cage once a month.. as in the bedding, the sides should only be cleaned with a wet paper towel and dried with a dry one. ;)

Also, clean the water EVERY DAY! And be sure it is clean. don’t be surprised if you have to clean it more than once a day. Also use distilled water.

Some Words on this Species:

GREAT LIZARD! I HAVE ENJOYED MINE!
