WHAT IS A LIZARD?

There are only 6 species of lizards found in North America as most species are more tropical in nature. Lizards superficially resemble salamanders (which are amphibians), but there are a number of clear differences. Lizards have scales, whereas salamanders have moist, soft skin. In addition, lizards have claws and external ear openings, while salamanders do not.


There are many species of Lizard suitable as a companion. They come from a diverse range of habitats. Cool Companions has suitable enclosures for all species of Lizard.

Lizards require places to hide in their enclosure, without these areas your animal will become stressed. Stress is noticeable by a lack of appetite and your animal becoming less active. This is when sickness might occur.

There are a variety of substrates which can enhance the look of your enclosure, while being beneficial to your animal. There are some harmful substrates also; it is best to check before embarking on your enclosure beautification programme. Whichever substrate is used your animal must be kept clean.

Heat is very important for the well being of your animal. Too hot an enclosure will kill your animal within minutes; too cold an enclosure will lead to serious health problems. The preferred temperature gradient within a cage is 24 to 32 degrees. Your animal will choose its desired heat by moving between the two extremes.

Heat Pads work efficiently and cheaply for the majority of Lizards kept. When placed under one portion of your animal's enclosure a temperature gradient is created. Depending on the species of animal you are keeping a light or ceramic heat lamp might be needed as well as or instead of the heat pad. Lights and heat lamps should be connected to a thermostat.
