Eastern glass lizard

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

legless lizards

Sexing and Characteristics:

I saw mine mating so i found out what their sex was.

Mostly Active During:

None

Substrate and Water Needs:

Always have clean water available. water dish has to be big enough for the lizard to fit in it and soak during shedding. Provide at least two hiding spots, they love to hide.

Since my lizards are wild caught, i use dirt from my backyard that has no fertilizers. if your lizard is store bought, use the same kind as they had in store, if its wild caught use the dirt from the area in which you found it.

Lighting and UVB:

I never use uv lights and they did great.
(they started breeding)

one 40 watt bulb is good for basking.
(in the morning, i leave it on for about an hour)

Temperatures and Humidity:

I keep mine at room temperature inside the house. ( 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit)

Heating and Equipment:

Undertank heating only. Please dont use heat rocks.

Caging Provided:

15 gallon at least for one or two lizards.
20 gallon is better though, they are not climbers so use long cages.

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

I feed mine about 5 crickets (each lizard) every other day
i also feed them earthworms, mealworms and small frogs(sometimes).

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Dust crickets w/ calcium powder once a week.

Maintenance:

Very easy to maintain, just provide clean water everyday and scoop up poop as soon as possible (it will really stink up your room if not removed quickly.)

Some Words on this Species:

Not very good pets for people who like active pets. These lizards like to bury and hide all day except when feeding.
Never pick them up by their tail, IT WILL BRAKE OFF VERY EASILY!
