Coral Keepers Alligator diary!

Hello everyone! I was at my friends house yesterday and he caught a baby alligator lizard. He wanted to give it to his chickens but instead gave it to me. So, the Alligator lizard is about 3 inches from head to tip of its tail. The tail is very long! The tank that I set up for the Alligator Lizard is a 30 gallon long. I'll post a few pictures of the tank soon.


*NOTE* The Alligator Lizard is NOT a real Alligator, its a type of lizard.

You should really keep the light on one end of the tank, so there is a warm, and cool side. And remember to keep the water on the cool side.

Ok, I got the picture. Here is the picture of the Alligator lizard. (Sorry about the crappy picture, it was taken by a cellphone camera.)
