Housing: Guatemalan Tiger Rumps require an enclosure that is at least 2-3 times their leg span in length and width. They should also have a hiding place, such as a hollow log or a small cave, and a water dish. The substrate should be kept dry, and the enclosure should be misted lightly once a week.
