I haven't had mine long - got them from luke and daniel on here. I'm keeping them in a 6 x 2 x 2 at the moment but I think they would enjoy a bit more height than that. Have large java branches in there, a very large water bowl (xl cat litter tray to be precise) and a thick layer of orchid bark. Was thinking about adding a large water fall but the humidity seems to be okay at the moment - might still add it in the future but they do collect bacteria quite quickly. I've got a guarded and statted 100w Spot Bulb for light/heat, which is keeping a good amount of heat. Do have a heat mat in the enclosure but I'm not using it as it's in a stack and the other vivs have night time heating, meaning this one gets a good ambient anyway. Using a 4 foot 10% UVB tube too.

The ones I have are adults and mine are not aggressive at all - I imagine like any lizard they are skittish and more prone to running when little but should tame down. Mine only frill up when the bosc walks past.

i have 1. juv male. had him since start of sept. not while long like but have read a lot.
males tend de calm down more than female do, but they are 1 of the harder lizards de clam down.
mine still h8's being touched. takes a lota work de calm them down. if i were buying again id buy adult already docile enough to handle cause they stress a lot when lifted. never mind the frilling and hissing and flipping all round the place. lol.
great pet though, looks well cool and defo a disply animal. will eat like hourse so b prepared de get a lota hoppers. they love them.
