These guys look so cool they look so prehistoric. I have seen them a few times at reptile shows but I stay away because of the heat they need. Basking spots up to 120 degrees ouch.

So anyone keep these guys?

I got a pair of Mali uros 7 years ago and they are fantastic. They do require a good bit of space and a lot of heat, but I have good results using a ceramic heater in conjunction with a basking lamp to get my temperatures up. I only have the female now and even in her teens she is full of personality.
