Adults can reach a body size of 20-25cm (8-10 inches), they guess 80cm (31.5 inches) with the tail. While young they range within shades of greens, usually olive to dark green with some diagonal desk light green stripes. As they mature, the colour lightens and a dorsal comb runs down the back and tail. Their long tail is striped and they have massive heads with big yellow eyes.
You must provide Water Dragons beside a large enclosure and water nouns. The water must be extremely clean and well filter. Plenty of branches must be provided, as Water Dragons love to lie on a branch above the marine.
Depending on how many Water Dragons you’re keeping, a 6x2x2 foot enclosure is a minimum size needed for one male and two females. The more space you can provide the better this will be for your Water Dragons. You must provide a steam spot for each animal, ideally above a branch. This should be 40C (104F) with the milieu temperature between 28-32C (82.4-89.6F). A high humidity is required at 80-90%.
Water Dragons feed on a catalogue of insects, mice, earthworms, slugs and snails. You can also feed them on tinned cat food and approx. 25% of their diet should consist of fruit and vegetables.
Hope this helps and good luck.
