Thanks all for the comments So glad that everyone seems to love these guys!

These lizards are very rare in the world and I'm lucky enough to live in Vietnam where they can (not really easily) find them in nature. According to the guy that sold me these 3, mine are all F1 & caught in the wild, however there're currently alot of F2, F3 successfully captive breed (as I saw when I come to his place & there're alot of new born crocodile lizards available)
And for the care sheet, actually I just followed the info from this site (Animal Finder) to take care of them, nothing too difficult in condition tbh

Also, this article (Chinese Crocodile Lizard) is very very detailed & interesting, the writer even let them live together with Green Water Dragons & Basilisk. (And I did try this too lol, nothing really happened between these two species, but as he mentioned, there would be always the risk of food competition, which could lead to injuries, so... not for now!)

Anyway here're some more picts of Draco (Red & Golden) & Malfoy (Black & Orange), I have to admit that I truely truely love the coloration of this species! :3
