A Southern Alligator Lizard climbing through plants
Our Rarely seen Southern Alligator Lizard (
). Elgaria multicarinata
Now that spring is in the air, it would seem these lizards are more active. In our experience these are secretive lizards. 🙂

Today we thought we would share a closeup of a Monkey-Tailed Skink (
). These are easily one of our favorite skinks! Corucia Zebrata

Baby Ocellated Skinks
Our Ocellated Skinks are growing up! A few months ago, some Ocellated Skinks (
) were born and have been steadily growing up. Chalcides ocellatus
Ocellated skinks are viviparous, meaning females give birth to live young that have developed inside the body of the parent. Ocellated skinks are tiny at birth, just a few centimeters in length.
Nigerian Uromastyx breeding
It’s that time of year again! Our Nigerian Uromastyx (
) are actively courting and breeding off and on over the last two weeks. We love Uromastyx, and can’t wait to see those beautiful little babies. 🙂 Uromastyx geyri

Next year our Trinket Rat Snakes (

Amazon Tree Boas copulating
Its that time of year again when our Amazon Tree Boas are busy bees!
Not the best picture I must say, though we don’t want to disturb our animals during breeding season. Our little yellow male went straight to work when introduced to the much larger female.
With luck and patience, we’ll have some beautiful ATBs from this pairing later on this year.
