The North African Spiny Tailed Lizard (Uromastyx Acanthinurus) is a boldly colored Dessert Species of Lizard that is completely herbivorous. They are easy to care for as long as you offer them the following. They require a large desert habitat of at least 120cm x 60cm x 45cm. They need to have 12 hours of UVB lighting per day and a ceramic or infrared light to heat the one side of their cage. They can be kept in pairs or trios. They need fresh veggies to be put in their cages at 6 or 7am. feeding them as early as possible is essential for proper digestion. A gentle mist every couple of evenings and diligent keeper. If you can offer them this verythday then they will live well and breed easily. They do well in dryer climates so consider this before buying one. A great species for advanced keepers
