Species: (Laemanctus Longipes)
Origin: This animal originates from Central America mostly parts of Mexico.
Size And Longevity: This animal is use too tropical like weather and are fairly large in
size lizard and I don't recommend this lizard for the novice as they
are all pretty agile and all though they are pretty shy at first with proper
care they seem too tame pretty well, they are also fun too watch as they
are very interesting and very active animals, if you are use to handling
the common Iguana then you should have no problem with owning this
animal as a pet and like the common Iguana it is also arboreal meaning
it enjoys climbing but unlike the common Iguana it prefers to feed on
insects instead of vegetables.
This animal is a fairly large size lizard and full grown gets to be a
size of 22 to 28 inches in length, and are very active, these animals
are also diurnal meaning they are mostly active at day and are usually a
grass green in color with a blackish stripe behind the eyes.
Habitat And Caging Requirements: This species is usually quiet easy to keep as they do not require
a large amount of space to keep and seem to do well at a temperature
of around 77 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, 1 adult animal can
be kept in a 50 or 60 gallon tank or vivarium and are best
kept by themselves.
You can decorate the tank with wood, live plant's, sand substrate
and rock's, this species seems to do best in a or tropical like aquarium
or vivarium type setup with a basking area and some moss, chola wood
for hiding places, and a water dish large enough too climb into, and
keep the water clean by changing it every other day, also keep a water
spray bottle handy to mist down the setup every 2 to 3 days and this
will also help with your' pet's shedding, they like it tropical and moist,
some people also use a small heat pad at one end of the setup so the
animal can move to and from heat as it needs, keep a spray bottle
handy too mist the animal down daily also.
Temperature And Lighting Requirements: You want to use low wattage bulbs' for best results' to avoid
over heating of your' pet as over heating could cause your' pet
to dehydrate, these animals' seem to fair well at temperatures
of (77 to 84 degrees F.).
Feeding And Nutrition: For feeding your' this animal prefers to eat up high in limbs and
will readily eat crickets', meal worms, super worms, fruit flies, and
Handling And Care: "Alright for the care and handling of your pet", I know these little guys' are so
cute that your' going too want too handle them all the time right?, but when you first get
them it is a good idea put them in their new home and mostly enjoy watching them
get use to their new home and feed them well for at least a couple of day's which
is really a good idea for any new pet that you get of any kind and then gradually
start too handle them from time to time, this is called acclimating your' animal
which cut's down stress which in turn make's you have a happier healthier pet,
this species is a bit shy and may take may take a little while for it to get use to
it's new owner so start handling them a little at a time, also add limbs and
wood for your' animal too climb.
