My daughters teacher had these two long tail lizards in a small container in their classroom. They didn’t want to upgrade to a proper environment so asked if any parents would be willing to adopt them. My daughter is into lizards a lot and after researching and shopping around for the best supplies, we brought the two little ones home today.

Their tank is completely bioactive with all live plants, springtails and dwarf isopods, and real cork bark, leaf litter and seed pods. I’m not a big lizard person, but I enjoy the pretty view of nature their enclosure creates.

They’re a little underweight but their tank is stocked with the above mentioned critters as well as flightless fruit flies so they should feast tonight.

I thought maybe some of you would enjoy the little guys. AB97F85C-95B5-4F71-ACD7-F4BF6D52F19F.jpegE4A37D33-48C6-4381-95D1-E3E342E57DF5.jpeg8C6C3149-890D-4CE3-B504-A3AAE3030A2A.jpegBE818B66-FEC0-45EE-A48D-20D4F66BCE09.jpeg

And here’s a quick pic I took of the lizards in their classroom cage to show the one plastic aquarium plant and what their tank was before. AC9F83BD-B3B7-4254-8DCD-41027CF27B51.jpeg

Thank you! Even my husband likes them and he is not a lizard fan usually :lol: .
Well, with the beautiful set up you've created it's like watching a living TV... unless they don't move around much then it's like watching paint dry. I'm glad he likes them too! :D

They look very similar to our little skinks but they have much cooler markings I think. They are very cute and the habit you’ve created looks amazing.

They´re lovely! I´m so glad the teacher was reasonable and rehomed them, now they get to live the life of luxury :bliss:
I love their home, all the plants are so beautiful, I´m sure they love it too! :)

My goodness those guys have realllllllly long tails. We have some here in the Payson area with extra long tails, but nothing like those. Ours have lots of pretty colors though.
