Taking care of neonate Beaded Lizards takes little effort. In my opinion,
they’re one of the easiest reptiles to keep in captivity. The
lizards should be housed separately in shoebox racks, but can also
be kept in an aquarium with heat lamps. A thermostat should be used
in all applications. The temperature of their living quarters should
ideally be 78° F on the cold end, to 88° F on the hot side.
UV lights are unnecessary.

There is no need for vitamin supplements. A bowl big enough to
soak their entire body is desireable. Neonates can be started on pinkies
for the first two or three meals, but after that you can go straight
to hopper mice. I usually feed them about 75% of what they can take
once a week.
