These wonderfully odd lizards are not often available, but worth searching for if you can meet their unique needs. They feed only upon lizards, grabbing them by the throat with the elongated jaws and applying pressure until death ensues. several that I received as adults lived for 8-9 years, but we do not know enough about their habits and needs at this point..they are best reserved for those with experience. Mine thrived on a diet on anoles and house geckos, basking temps of 90 F, and lots of UVB exposure.
