Diet: Earth Worms, Wax Worms, and other
grubs. I am yet to see them eat a Cricket.
Adult size: 18- 20cm long.
Their natural habitat includes: sandy shores, pastureland,
and plantations. Many of Acanthodactylus species
are threatened by habitat loss. They prefer to be
kept around 24- 28*C. A basking spot must be provided
with a UVB light. They love to sit between the crevices
of rocks, and absorb heat from either rocks or the
heat light. It is not recommended to offer them
a Heat Rock, as it may burn their skinny feet. I
prefer to keep them on Reptile Carpet as it ensures
that they always have a good grip under them, and
does not let the grubs burrow in to it.
