What is the adult size of uromastyx?

I am considering purchasing a uromastyx, or lizard, and would like to know how large he will get as an adult.


Answer by  jeanie644 (21)

Uromastyx, when fully grown, can be anywhere between 8 and 30 inches. Make sure their cage is at least 4 feet high and 3 feet wide, to comfortably accomodate their size. They will need a deep layer of calcium sand in their cage, for burrowing. Optimal temperatures are between 75 and 95 degrees.


Answer by  jaw2009 (109)

It depends on the exact type of uromastyx. Some stay under one foot in length, others can reach up to three feet.


Answer by  candymartin (38)

The adult Uromastyx can reach up to 36 inches in length. It is important to remember this when buying or building a cage for him or her as they do require a lot of space. It is also important to consider whether you have the time, money, and knowledge to care for this animal.

you can expect a uromastyx to get up to three feet in length. And at this size, you will need to have an aquarium that is over 100 gallons in size, or build a large enclosure for him. If you want a friendly lizard, that requires less space, look into bearded dragons


Answer by  bulrich777 (45)

The largest size is up to 36 inches but most will not grow up to be that big. Most grow to be around 25 inches or so. The low end would be about 15 inches.


Answer by  LianV (183)

Depending on the specific breed of uromastyx the adult size can range from 10 inches up to about 40 inches from head to the tip of their tail, most of it being their tail of course. Their body can also range from a thin muscular build to very wide muscular build.
