 Glass lizard

well Iím new at this too but iv been researching alot and i found some of this:

1. At the zoo, they eat crickets, meal worms and furred mice.
2. Judith DePue, owner of "Animal Crackers" told me she feeds her Legless Lizard pinkie mice, (very young mice still without fur) night crawlers, bugs, and sometimes even canned cat food.
3. Temperature should be 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit
4. They are very easy to keep, you simply have to refresh their water and remove waste daily.
5. They are not terribly social, they usually hide somewhere in their tank.
6. A 40 watt bulb should be used for basking. (usually one hour in the morning)
7. You should have a 15 gallon tank at least for two. They are not climbers, so it should be long, not tall.
8. You should use under tank heating, never heat rocks.

Iím not sure about the tank thing cause other people said it should be at least 20 gallons long or more!
Well anyway i hope that sorta helped.
or maybe go to this site http://www.wnyherp.org/care-sheets/lizards/sheltopusik.php
