Caring For A Lizard


Apartment Listing  

A lizard must be carefully placed at a safe location, where it can freely move its body. It should never be manhandled by catching hold of its head or tail as these body parts are fragile. To be on a positive note, maximum number of lizards is harmless, and even if they bite, the effects are negligible and can be overlooked.

However, there are some exceptions as some of the lizards have sharp claws which can cause intense scratches if proper care is not taken.

The process of safely handling a lizard is simple. Locate your hands on to the hips of the lizard, with the other hand hold on to the area near its fore legs. This way you can lift the lizard without hurting it or making it angry.

The most important factor in the caring of a lizard is to wash hands before and after handling it. Place the lizard at such a place where proper light and heating are available. The very sign of a lizard shedding its skin means that the lizard requires some change in the environment. Apart from heat, a reptile also needs to be checked for humidity, due to its nature of shedding skin. For this purpose, a thermal gradient could be used to keep its body temperature under check.

Each individual lizard may choose a favorite basking, hiding spot and sleeping spot according to its comfort. So, therefore, you should ensure that specific spot is constantly available for the lizard, no matter what time of the day or night it is. The dominant lizards will never share their spots with other members or with same species, and it is a must that visual barriers must be kept for submissive cage mates to feel comfortable in their zone of living.
