Well, here is a basic run-down of a leo set-up: You need 10-20 gallon cage, reptile carpet (or any non-particle substrate... Don't use sand, walnut shells, wood shavings, ect.), a digital thermometer (the dial and stick-on ones are not accurate), and a heat source (Either a UTH or a lamp). The hot side should be around 90*F, and the cool side should be 75-80*F. You want a temp. gradient of about 10-15*F in your cage. You also need a hide on both the hot and the cool side, and a humid hide for shedding. They need calcium in a little dish to lick, a water dish, and dust his crickets with calcium a couple times a week.


That's all I can think of right now. :) Any specific questions?
