 Found grass lizard in wood pile

hey guys, i have identified this little critter based on pics. i found him in the house in the wood box. i am not sure if this is a wild critter or was someones pet. it is very tame. it is also missing it’s left foot and shows signs of tail regrowth. i am trying to get some info on what would be the best way to care for this guy. none of the neighbors claim him/her. i put him in a 10 gallon with uv light for now, gave him some crix, supers and greens.... any info would be helpful....

They are native to Southeast Asia. It would be best to get it a 15g cage or bigger. They like it too be humid and like to climb. It’s best to have live plants in the cage. If you aren’t sure what plants to get try the plants and vegetables forum. They will eat all kinds of bugs but don’t feed them too many hard ones (mealworms, etc don’t feed them beetles or pill bugs). feed it every day if it’s a juvenile or every other if it’s an adult. they can live for more than five years.

Did you include the tail when you measured it? My lizard won’t eat everything if I feed him every day. Superworms are ok for him just don’t feed him just superworms. Crickets and roaches are fine. Mine eats about 3-6 crickets every other day. Could you post a picture of the lizard.

yes i measured his tail, but it does have about an inch of regrowth, so i dont know how long it was originally, but her body is pretty small, she is fairly equal in proportion, tail length vs body length. cool, i will try some roaches.. i will try to get pics up, i just got a new camera, cause my other one is buried in storage... i have tried to put them up before and not succeeded, but will try again..
