Quick lick here, if you have a reptile, or feel compelled to rescue/adopt one whose current care-takers cannot or will not care for for it at this time, please visit our post: Everything You Need To Have A Lizard.
You’ll discover what you need and why. It currently has all but the fruits & veggies your friend needs. It’s my understanding pet supplies are eventually being delivered by Amazon. I hope for the sake of all pets, that remains correct. Lizardplanet receives a portion of the selling price of the items at that link. Details are noted there.
If you need some form of an enclosure immediately & do not have an aquarium, but at home you have a dog crate, patience & determination, tying wire, snips & something similar to chicken wire or window screen, please visit here: Choosing A Home ….
Seeing how I made such a contraption could possible give you a better idea using the same principals.
If you cannot provide adequate lighting immediately, get it as soon as possible & realize this, if the weather is decent, if you can keep them 100% safe, sit outside in the sun with them a few times during the day. It’s good bonding & relaxing time. If you have paracord or similar cordage & beads, make a harness & walk or stand with your lizard. Learn how:
You can open a sunny window with the screen closed & place your lizard there (where danger of children or other pets does not exist). Put pillows around for them to lay on or worse, fall onto. Place a safe catch, like tall metal cans or rods on the sides as an emergency prop in the window’s track to shield your lizard from a falling window just in case, even small windows are life-threatening. Every non-working window had a day when it stopped working correctly.
If it’s sunny but chilly, place him or her on a heating pad there (on lowest setting). he or she will get vital uva & uvb from the sun while remaining warm. See, there are many ways to find a way to help a being – even if the ways we discover in which to do so seem a bit odd.
