These funny fat lizards are super cool to keep. They don't go very fast but they are full of personality. I really love keeping both these and the Blue-Tongued Skinks. They are amazing little creatures with the sweetest eyes. Their faces look very much like that of a snake and apart from having legs they are very similar. They eat cat food, crickets, roaches and other insects. I love to feed mice to mine and cat food every now and then. They require UV lighting even though top breeders will tell you they won't benefit from it. I love this species and I would recommend them to any pet lover. They are like puppies. Lazy and cute.
