JON HOPE THIS HELPS!!


Chinese Lacerta General Info: Adult length up to 6". Lacertas are active and colorful small lizards. For this reason, they are often recommended as ideal childrens’ pets.

Temperature/Humidity: Ideal daytime temperature for these lizards should range between 70 and 85 degrees. Additionally, a low wattage basking lamp should be used to maintain a local temperature of 90 to 95 degrees. Night time temperature should remain between 55 and 75 degrees. The humidity for these lizards should be kept at or near 55 percent. Lighting: All diurnal (mainly active during the day) lizards require ultraviolet lighting to maintain good health. Ultraviolet lighting is recommended for 12 hours per day.

Feeding/Watering: Lacertas are insectivorous (eat mainly insects). Insects should be dusted with a vitamin/calcium powder. Suggested insects are: crickets, mealworms, superworms, and waxworms. Worms such as earthworms, red wigglers, and butterworms may also be included in their diet. A shallow water bowl is necessary to keep these lizards in optimum health. Water should be changed daily.

Habitat/Housing: Individuals can be maintained in a 15 gallon terrarium. A screen lid is essential for proper air exchange. Lacertas are best kept singularly. However, for multiple pets, increase habitat size accordingly to ensure each lizard has plenty of space to move about and not interfere with tankmates. An undertank heater should be placed on the same end of the tank as the basking lamp. Multiple climbing branches are necessary as well as a shelter for hiding, especially if multiple pets are in the same enclosure. Misting the habitat occasionally will help maintain proper humidity levels and allow for these lizards to intake water in a manner to which they are accustom. Substrate (Bedding): 2" to 3" inches of Bed-A-Beast is recommended for lacerta terrariums. Cork bark can be added as low hiding areas.

I have a group of the steppe lizards (eremias arguta) coming in tomorrow.

The only place I have seen the Chinese blue spotted lacerta (Eremias velox) in recent memory is on a german pricelist.
