Long-tailed lizards live well together and with other similarly-sized, gentle reptiles or amphibians like house geckos, long-tailed lizards or green treefrogs. If housing multiple pets, watch for any aggressive or territorial behavior. They eat mostly live insects and are most active during the day. They eat small, live insects, like "gut loaded" (feed the insects a special supplement so they have extra nutrients) crickets, mealworms or waxworms.

Things to remember

Handling
Long-tailed lizards are delicate and should not be handled very much. Take care to never handle him by the tail - it could break off.

Environment
Long-tailed lizards come from a tropical environment and need a warm, humid home.

Calcium dust
"Dust" the insects with a calcium supplement twice a week - ask a PetSmart associate for details.

Feeding amounts & frequency
Feed juveniles twice a day; adults 3-4 times a week. Offer an amount that can be consumed by the end of the day.

Water
Provide a shallow dish for drinking water and change it daily. Mist all surfaces of the habitat daily to provide drinking water and maintain humidity.

Housing
Use a 20-gallon or larger, long glass terrarium with a screen lid for proper ventilation.

Hiding & climbing
Include several hiding places, plus an assortment of climbing branches.

Bedding
Line the terrarium floor with 2"-3" of coconut fiber or reptile bark bedding to help maintain humidity levels. Clean out waste weekly and change bedding at least once a month to prevent fungus or mold growth.

Long-Tailed Lizard is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's big... I bought this cage for my rabbit. Within minutes of being put into his new cage, Fitty instantly fell in love with his new habitat. Tons of space for him to run and hop around. My one complaint is with the comfort shelf: the installation of it can be troublesome, though this is no way made me regret purchasing the cage. This cage is perfect for larger small pets like rabbits and guinea pigs.
