1. Design a habitat with appropriate hideouts, climbs, and substrate. The ideal setup would be a glass tank with a mesh lid, usually 10 gallons or more. 2. Create a warm zone AND a cool zone using a heat lamp system, positioned at one end of the tank. That way the lizard can move if it feels too hot or cold. 3. Provide appropriate humidity. This usually involves damp substrate or a misting bottle, and this is why a glass cage is preferred over a more open cage. 4. Provide appropriate nutrition, including protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and minerals. Always have a dish of clean water.
If you do get the lizard, make it's cage exactly like it's habitat. If it likes a lot of sunlight put him by your brightest window or keep a lamp over his cage. If he tends to hide a lot that's what they do so don't be worried.
