I currently use Beardie Life which my Uro (geyri) loves to burrow in. It looks great for a day or too but then it goes a sort-of faded white colour (not sure if this is heat or UV exposure). It is also a nightmare to replace and dispose of. Not to mention the price.
What are people using on...
I have a 2 month old ornate uromastyx I picked up on 22nd December, he was described as skittish in the shop but on the first two days of being with us he was confident and running around, climbing, basking and had a few mouthfuls of food. He is captive bred. I was really...
I'm new to forums (in general) but thought what better place to enquire than a dedicated reptile forum!!

Hello, I'm very new to lizard care and this is my first one. His name is Panem and I've had him for ~2 years now. He's still DEATHLY scared of me. He only comes out of his cave if I'm moving slowly or sitting and doing something. And if I do move around, he freezes and stares at me, and runs if...
The UK's salad selection seems to be pretty limited. Most of our salads have more water than nutrition or are otherwise unsuitable for Uromastyx.
The best source for good Uromastyx foods seems to be this page (low phosphorus/high calcium, low goitrogens and gylcosides:

I am planning to get an ornate uromastyx this year and was wondering about what I nees:

What type of light/heat buLbs do I need?
I have a 3 year old male Uromastyx Nigriventris for sale. £100 or £150 with 4 foot vivarium, including lighting (including t5 strip light). Only for sale as I want to concentrate on my Uromastyx Geyri's so I need the space. Can take to Donny if required.

I'm looking to purchase a Uromastyx in the very near future but want to ensure I a) have the right equipment and b) that the set up is working as it should do before committing to the purchase.
I may waffle and this post may be rather long winded but I...
Recently me and the girlfriend re-arranged our living space and we have some room (about 110cm~60cm (43" x 24") that I want to steal for a lizard as currently we only have snakes and a crested.
I may be able to push a little extra length (max of 10cm extra) providing I find/make a...
