for the past 2 weeks na nasa pangangalaga ko ang trio ng changeable lizard, isheshare ko mga observations ko at personal touches ko.
#1 kong napansin na importante sa kanila, they need a looot of space. a 5-gallon tank less than enough for one. i noticed they do a lot of nose rubbing and head bumping sa glass that's why nilipat ko sila outdoors in a screen front/top enclosure. there i noticed mas gusto nila ang new enclosure nila outdoors.
substrate: 4 pages of newspaper spread out sa bottom then nakafold ung sides pataas since they don't dig naman. then nagscatter ako ng leaves, damo at dried talahib. i'm still thinking if i'll put a bio-active coco peat but since maliit lang poop nila and it doesn't smell as bad as my golden skinks e i'm sticking to newspaper muna.
water: naglagay ako ng 9x9x2 inches na microwaveable container and filled it with water.
feeding: 3-4 times a week or every other day. superworms ang fave nila. safe naman sila kumain ng may high fat content since they're really active at medyo slender built naman katawan nila. napansin kong dedma sa kanila ung superworm beetles. nakain din sila saging in very small amounts.
decors: lots and lots of wood or branches. mahilig sila tumalon talon.
behavior: peaceful pag hindi pa nila breeding season. takot talaga sila sa tao. sumilip o lumapit lang ako nagkakalampagan na. magulat lang isa, magwawild na lahat.
rating ko: feeding-8 kasi hindi pihikan at di rin matakaw. personality-4 kasi magugulatin at nangangagat pag hawak mo na, in short maldita. overall hardiness and ease of care-9 nuff said
