The information on the BambooZoo site is as much as 10 years old and in the hobby much has been learned. Though, I believe there is merit in keeping the site open. There are many controversial issues presented in these pages. Please view BambooZoo as a starting point in your research.
These beings are as complicated as we are and deserve more than a basic 5 paragraph care sheet to maintain their health and well being.
My passion has changed. This is where I am today. Change the World.
THE STAR AGAMAS
I LIKE living with these guys! They are very active lizards. Quite shy but possibly tamable to an extent. When the smaller was here and "hospitalized" he became much easier to handle for a while. But as he improved health wise, he withdrew. You would have to handle this one every day to keep it handlable and I still don't think I would trust it not to escape. They are a much better display lizard. After getting a little bit of help after their arrival have been quite hardy. These 2 males had to be separated but are living well with other species. One with the Leopard Geckos and another with a Bearded Dragon and Berber Skink. When cleaning inside their environments they dive for a corner and hide till I am finished.
The Stars will wait for their turn at the food bowls and have not shown aggressive signs to the other residents. The Leopards are first to the bowl of food when offered. (Those 2 appear as soon as they hear the lid pop.) The Agamas are more patient.
Although residents of a dry climate I can attest to the fact that they will enjoy a good misting at one end of their tank. When I wet down the hide area for the Leopards, the Agama will immediately go spend an hour or two there.
The Agamas will also make use of all the space that you give to them. They tend to switch places every hour or so and find another area. It could be the level lower or ground level of the basking area, could be hiding behind some leaves or in the cool area. They pounce on anything moving at ground level or underground when it catches an eye.
I have lost these guys a couple of times and have been successful in catching them though, it may have been a few days. I have found mine on the back of the couch under a regular household lamp.
Mine have not had any heating at night but would appreciate a little extra heat if given. Sometimes I find the one making use of the Leopard Gecko heat mat. All in all, I find these guys very hardy and sociable, if not with their own species. They are small enough that you can provide a great housing arrangement for them in the 40 gallon range, or even a little smaller. Quite economical to feed including a few (very few) veggies.
