    So I'm very new to this lizard thing, but I really want to get a lizard. Anyway, here's what I need help with:
    One: Any name suggestions? I'm pretty set on the name Lizzie, but anyone else got suggestions?
    Two: What type of lighting and heating would you recommend? I have a 10 gallon cage, by the way.
    Three: My cage is wider than it is tall... should it be taller instead?
    Four: Any other advice?

    Hi, I don`t keep the species, but from what little I know a 10 gallon (fishtank?) isn`t large enough because you cannot provide a decent temp and humidity gradient, also they are quite active animals.

    OK, I'll look into it, thanks :)

    They'll need a basking area in the high 80's if not warmer as well as UVB lighting. Stay away from the compact coil bulbs and try to find a linear fluorescent tube as the coils are very inefficient. I'd shoot for at least a 20 gallon tall tank.
    Care wise they aren't much different from anoles, at least in terms of enclosure parameters. Green Anole | Reptile Forums - Information
