I believe they are as easy as the more commonly available Lisks'. I have a couple books with their care in them. If your interested mail me and I'll take notes for you.

i think their care and temperment is similar to the chinese water dragon as all my wd books have sections on them.

They are easy to keep (like a WD as mentioned) but they are fast and often skittish. Males are absolutely stunning.
Great fun to keep, even if you get one that doesn't like handling.

They are often available as WC or CH specimens but occasionally you see CB. For me it makes no difference as to which i keep asi enjoy watching them bouncing around the viv but if you want something to handle hold out for a young CB animal.

What does WD. WC, CH and CB mean (sorry to be dim).

How big do they grow to? Thanks

Thanks

WC = Wild Caught
CH = Captive Hatched (ie mum came in gravid)
CB = Captive Bred (ie mum was bred in captivity)

Another would be:

CF = Captive Farmed (ie animals are farmed, funnily enough :lol: )

not the best choice unless you have experiance of this kind of animal.

They dont take to taming thar easy, but its not impossible. they have very sharp, razor like claws, they are very skitish and very fast, infact in the wild they are known to run so fast they can 'walk on water'

many specimans in captivity suffer from snout damage due to small viv sizes, they do need a bigger viv, 5 or 6 foot long min really.

hope this helps
