Spider-Lizard: The Spiderman Copycat

Lizards in the shades of Spiderman's superhero outfit are turning out to be the latest craze in pets. Rock agamas (Agama mwanzae) are high maintenance animals, in need of special diets and strict temperature settings. So if you were thinking of running out to the store to claim your own, you might want to think twice.

The vivid red-and-blue colouring is almost uncannily like that of the Marvel superhero, and comic book fans have been flocking to exotic pet shops to snap them up. Agamas like the Spider-Lizard, as it has become known make good pets, as they become tame and docile if handled regularly. However, they require specialist equipment in the UK to maintain their temperature.

The care doesn't sound much different than what a leopard gecko needs, which isn't really "high maintenance". Once you have the tank/enclosure setup with heating equipment its not too bad.

You unfortunately spend more time "feeding the food", since you have to gutload the feeder insects to make sure the reptile is getting proper nutrients.
