Crevice Spiny Lizard - Sceloporus poinsetti are small and fast moving lizards getting to a size of around 8 - 11 inches when fully grown. They are generally a greenish black colour with white stripes and markings.
They require medium tank to do well, this should be at least 18 inches long and 12 inches high and 12 inches wide, kitchen paper towels make a good substrate for these as does 'scrubland substrate'. The substrate should be changed regularly to keep any possible infections away.
They should have a water bowl with fresh water daily.
Feed these carnivores on crickets, mealworms and locusts. Start small Spiny's off on small insects and move up the size as your pet grows
The food should have a supplement added to it in the form of a powdered multi vitamin supplement to encourage strong healthy bones. This should be applied to the crickets prior to feeding at least once a week.
They will require some logs and at least two hiding places in the set up, good ones include pre make hides or upturned cork pieces.
Keep at a temperature of 20C - 24C using your preferred method of heating (mats, lamps etc) plus a Reptile Lighting unit to provide UVB light for healthy bone growth. Position a spot lamp over a rock or piece of wood to create a basking area for them. You should handle your lizard on a regular basis to allow the both of you to get acquainted and be comfortable with each other but bear in mind they are FAST MOVERS!.
