Unfortunately, the mortality of imported uromastyx in captivity has been unusually high and most specimens are dead by the end of the first year. The cause of death is primarily lack of knowledge about how to establish and maintain these lizards. These delightful lizards have an unusual and attractive appearance, are relatively docile, develop responsive personalities and once established are relatively easy to care for. Every effort should be made to acclimate, maintain and breed them before they are no longer available. This book will tell you how.
