    Height rather than width, Stephs measurements are about right but if your going for more than one more space is better as they are territorial.
    They require different lighting and requirements as a bearded dragons so have a look at the care sheet by Paul and Tony on the HerpShop.

    Saving from the wild is different from taking from the wild. Saving, you are treating the animal of critical wounds and injuries or re homing it from a place that could endanger it's life (Such as a city or town where there are feral cats, etc that can endanger its life) in a situation where re-homing isn't an option. This also requires a rescue permit, I do believe which makes sure you are fit to care for the animal.
    Taking, you are depriving a healthy animal of its freedom just for your own needs. Taking is un-necessary and is only done because a person wants to own an animal and is to lazy or to much of a scab to go out and purchase a captive bred specimen. ANd of course it is illegal.

    I agree with what stephensii said. Those measurements will be fine. Frilled Dragons love to climb! The higher you can provide, the better IMO. Make sure you give him alot of nice logs,branches, sticks and secured rocks to climb on :)
    Agreed with the above, a quick google search of care sheets and a look on HerpTrader/HerpShop should have you almost set!
    Good luck with your new guy when you get him!

    I am quite sure he doesn't want to stay. it's illegal and if someone reports you you're in big trouble.
    Please don't take any animals from the wild. It's unnecessary, cruel and plain stupid as it's illegal.
    Measurements as stated above are good but don't make it much smaller. They're a big territorial lizard and need space.
    Do a heap of research first though and buy off a reputable breeder......

    research ive done on frillies is i wouldnt reccomend them with out some type of experience like on water dragons or somthing big enough that likes the space if you go to herpshop they have a good guide on keeping them and cover it all from memory.
