I think you guys are talking about Emerald agamas(Japalura).

Nice lizards...but for best results:

1. Deworm
2. Keep them cool and humid

going out in the woods on my parents' property and sniffing out some king snakes or corn snakes for free. keep em quarentined and treat em for mites. havent done it yet, cuz they were always just so plentiful that it never crossed my mind, but how less expensive could you get? hehehe

You may find that this is more expensive (you may have to treat for internal parasites) then just getting a CB snake. When you can get a CB corn snake for $15 USD how can you go wrong with that? No need to treat for anything, no need to remove from the wild, and you probably won't have to feed it live.

we have one pet store here that has a california king for 99.99, when you can order online for 20 bucks, but then there is 35 shipping, sigh. the other pet store is not an option. they got in a huge amount of snakes. and turns out they were all wild caught and she let an RI spread through them from snake until they were ALL infected and some were spitting up blood. it was awful. and one had mites. she left em all in the room together.
i wish i could find some place where i could get a king or corn snake for a decent price rather than a hundred bucks for normal fifty fifty cal. king.
the added 35 for shipping doesnt make it too cheap. and i live right here in louisiana, where there are so many kings and corns around. you are right though, i forgot about internals. i do feel a LOT better about getting CB. just wish that i could find a place that would sell it for a decent price. no reason to sell them for hundred bucks.

Treefrogs and gartersnakes! Too many individual species between them to list, and all of them are treasures.

Long tailed grass lizards are FUN. Breeding them is easy, they hatch quickly, and are fun to watch.

Also, flying geckos. They're very interesting little geckos that never carry a high price tag.

Oh, I think it was called an Emerald Swift. Sound familiar?

Anyone give me a caresheet for long-tailed grass lizards, or a quick summary (temps, incubation temps,humidity.... etc)?

Giraffasaurus, Emerald Swifts (Sceloporus malachiticus or something like that) are iguanids that range from Mexico all the way to Panama, I think...forest type habitat with a bit of humidity...a common pet shop goof-up is treating and housing them like arid habitat species, in a totally barren desert set-up with sand and excessively dry conditions.

I think adoptions make the best economy reptiles! They are reptiles (which is cool) they are free (which is also cool) they usually come with some free housing stuff (which is even cooler unless everything reeks of cigarette smoke) and you get to give an animal a better life than it might have had (coolest part of all)!

I know that I will most likely catch some guff about keeping a mixed take but o'well. One of my favorite tankks is a 60 gallon tank that have screened sides and in it I have 4 anoles, 2 green tree frogs, 1 emerald Swift, 2 house geckos, and 2 long-tailed grass lizards. I have had the tank with those animals in it for 4 years. I have had to replace a few animals now and then. Also I have hatched out 3 house geckos, 12 anoles, 2 long-tailed grass lizards and 2 tree frogs from that tank.

I love my cornsnakes, and normal hatchlings are quite cheap here in the UK.

Second to that, I go with Alicewave on the adoption idea!!!Although my recently rescued 'free' boa just cost the equivalent of about 300 canadian dollars in vets bills, poor baby.

Well, you win some, you lose some...

cheers,
Brig.

Dilshad, thanks for the info. I didn't see how they kept it at the petstore, though the Petsmarts around here don't seem to be as evil as other places!
