Thanks. I mostly keep frogs and the best enclosure for them is vivaria. A planted tank usually provides a good amount of security as well as humidity and air exchange. I havent seen too many desert style vivs but I was very interested in trying it as I WANTED that swift lol.

That’s totally cool. But I can’t grow plants for myself so I wouldn’t subject a lizard to my gardening casualties. I have fake foliage in my swift’s tank and he’s gonna have to be happy with that! We’re actually thinking about getting a bigger tank and maybe a female swift as a companion. What has your experience been with introducing lizards to other new lizards? I have this feeling that there is more to it than meets the eye and you have to take into account the "lizard chemistry" factor, right? I mean, they might not actually like each other, right?

From what I have seen with emerald swifts is the males and females seem to get along. I may be incorrect as I am not there at night. The issue with adding a female after you give a larger tank is that they may breed. You can imagine the surprize of going to the tank in the a.m. and finding five two inch long lizards lol.

Another benefit of having one animal per enclosure is your favorite pet won’t have to compete with another for food, or the best basking and sleeping spots, and you’ll have half the pooh to clean ;)

Well, do you know if, in the wild, swifts hang out with their mate after the breeding takes place? I mean, are they social that way or do they tend to be loners? I won’t worry about it if he’s just as content to be on his own. I wondered if he might be happier with a girlfriend.
