Any good links for info on em - how to keep? how big they get? etc.

I got a few other lizards on my wish list, but im running out of space - maybe time to move house :)

cool - cheers jeremy :)

These could well jump to the top of my list.

From what ive read they keep in almost the same conditions as beardys yeah?

Gonna read up on em a bit more yet though - Ive never seen these in any shops near me and im not really sure about getting lizards through the post.

As I said - Gonna read up more before I decide

cheers for the link though - good site

only difference with uros and beardies is that uro's have to be kept hotter.

and uro's like to dig/hide more, where beardies like to climb more.

i have 5 mali's and an egyption. uro's are my favorite lizards by far.

Neveragain you have good taste in lizards.;) I plan to get a Niger Uromastyx in next couple of weeks, I think they are just so much fun to keep.

and just for the sake of it. here's my old tank (from when i only had 2 uros)


its a 90 gallon tank that is now the temp home for my egyption. i'd post pics of it now, but its pretty boring. just a piece of drift wood and a box for a hide (i am using a box for now until i remember to go out and get some bricks/slate to make him a better hide)
