Appearance
Collared agams can vary greatly in size, they can be anything between 60-100 cm. So it is important that they get the necessary space they need from an early age, as it will be a relatively large lizard. They are not that active but become so during the mating period.

The bottom layer in the terrarium can be mulch, aquarium gravel or sand. The good thing about a lot of plants it can hide behind.

Biology

If you have information about this, please send, we will be very grateful to receive the information.

Keep in terrarium
The terrarium must be at least 130 L, where the height must be higher than the length. The animals live in trees so must have plenty of climbing opportunities. As with other large lizards, the branches must be sturdy and properly attached. The daytime temperature in the warm end of the terrarium must be 35 degrees, and in the cold end 27-30 degrees. At night, you will be able to turn off all heat and lights so that the temperature drops to 20-22 degrees. The humidity must lie at 60-70% and there must be UVB. They must have a day length of 10-12 hours. They must have a water bowl where their whole body can be in. The terrarium should be showered 1-2 times a day.

Feed
Collared agams are insectivores, they eat everything they can gape at such as e.g. crickets, Dubai cockroaches, mealworms and grasshoppers. All feed animals must be shaken up in vitamins and minerals and must be supplemented with D3. A mouse once a month will provide some variety. Adults should feed 4-5 times a week.

Signs of illness

If you have information about this, please send, we will be very grateful to receive the information.

Other things
When the agam feels threatened, it will lie down on the ground or crawl behind a tree to avoid detection. If that doesn't work, it will stand up on its hind legs, spread its collar and bolt away as fast as it can.

The agam is shy by nature and mostly wants to hide. The collar of the agam only goes out if it feels threatened or is angry, so hopefully this is not something you will see if you keep it in a terrarium.
