 What is wrong with my yellow throated plated Lizard

Hi sorry to bug you guys. i have a yellow throated plated and its tempermant is everything but what is described everywhere he goes balistic when i try to get him out no matter which way i go about it. when i finally get him out he sits there frozen. i can barely go half an hour without him filling his water bowl with sand. Any ideas at all? could it be that he is in a terrarium which is making him nervous? i really dont wanna get rid of him. i have ordered a wood vivarium do you think that will help? please get back to me soon thanks

Also if he keeps filling his water bowl with sand is his humidity correct, i keep mine between 50/60 at the mo & they only use the bowls for drinking, are you using a screen top that will let the humidity out to fast?

hope this helps!

There’s very little info on the net, but so far i’ve been successful treating them similar to a sav taking into account their limbs are not designed for to much digging, that’s why i only put a foot of soil in my viv.

There’s plenty of branches etc to allow them secure themselves under them etc, also if you look at their toes which are fairly long they do allow for climbing that’s why i gave them height, so far it’s gone right!
