    Southern Angle Headed Dragon in Screen Terrarium

    I was wondering if keeping southern angle headed dragons in a large arboreal screen terrarium would work. I would have no heat source for them, only a UVB bulb above it. I couldn't think of any issues that would come about but thought I'd better just check
