That's one of my favorit lizards.I would give them a cage with this size 2mx1mx2m and with a big watertank.

I'm also keen on seeing how people have these setup.
Getting my R2 license and These are on of the two dragon species I want to get.

I've heard they are a really hard species to keep in the southern states because of their needed humidity levels. I've never personally had anything to do with them though, so would love to know their nature and temperament and what their personalities are like.

Hi ive got my girl Dee Dee set up in a 3ft Long X 2 ft High X 1ft Deep i'm pretty sure. As you can i only have a 30 cm diameter water bowl in there but I spray her everyday. Dee Dee is a little character i hand feed her and runs up and down the logs when she can hear crickets. Boyds arent one to be held they are so fragile though Dee Dee doesnt mind sitting on my hand while shes in the enclosure. I recommend them highly but as someone else said i dont know how they would go down south with humidity.... I hope this was some help

humidity down south wouldnt be an issue,boyds are rain forest animals that need humidity,down south they would need a little help with warmth

I am raising a few in Melbourne using peat as a substrate and spraying. They have access to an infra red basking globe in one corner - which they don't use much. I have started them in 45x45x60cm but they will need moving up to something larger soon. Usign a Repti Glo 10% 26watt compact for UV.
They have been a little fussy to feed but others say they have no problems.
