    Yes, only when they are staying outside the caves when you are close to the enclosure and you can put food etc in the tank and still they stay outside, then try to touch them, very gently and move very slowly.
    They can be mature in 2 or 3 years, female can have babies when measuring approx 90 to 95mm snout to vent length, (maybe sooner in captivity), females are larger than males.

    Hi, I`m very pleased to hear the female gave birth! They usually have one or two babies, but can be up to four. Yes, keep the baby in a separate tank, it does not need to be very big, and not too high, because they need to be within 15 to 25cm of the UVB light, feed the same as the adults, just very small insects (I would NOT use mealworms just now). Temperature not as hot as in large adult enclosure, maximum approx 32c, minimum not below20c (night).
    Can you take a photo?

    Just thought I would say Congratulaions on the arrival of your four baby Girdled Lizards. Sound like you will be very busy! Does this type of lizard have live births? or do they lay eggs?

    They give birth to live young which makes things a little easier for the keeper, not having to artificially incubate the eggs (not to mention, the extra cost of the incubator etc)!

    The babies will NOT be stressed when you put them in another tank, it does not need to be as big as the parents tank, they will be able to feed better without the parents, because adults will probably eat ALL the insects, maybe even attack the babies!
