Ornate Uromastyx - Uromastyx ornata

The Ornate Uromastyx (Uromastyx ornata) is an impressive and charismatic lizard species. They are desert dwellers and are completely herbivorous. They do very well in cages set up as a desert environment measuring at least 120cm x 60cm x 45cm. They need to be fed a range of plants, veggies and flowers on a daily basis. I would only recommend this species to expert keepers as they are easy to keep but can be tricky to breed and keep in perfect conditions. An amazing species and an impressive display animal.
