C. j. xantholophus - the largest of the three subspecies and has a yellow crest.
Average snout-to-vent length 4 3/4 - 5 inches ( 12.1 - 12.7 cm). Average total length is 10 inches (25.4 cm).

do you think that a 100 gallon screened reptarium will work for an adult jacksons? for example

Do they like to climb laterally a lot? That's a 4 foot tall enclosure and it's almost 3 feet wide. It just lacks depth.

Should be fine. Mine likes to hang out from the mid section up. He also loves to hang out on my giant ficus tree. He lives in a 24x24x42 cage.

I would think so. It really depends on your ambient room temperature. You want to shoot for an 80-82F basking spot. I keep my Jacksons in 18"x18"x36"
screened cages and I use a 40watt bulb for basking. My average room temperature is around 71-75F and the basking spot hovers around 82-83F. A larger cage doesn't necassarily mean you need a higher wattage bulb though, just as long as you can hit the 80F mark he should do O.K.
