Green Anoles (anolis carolinensis ) - Out of Stock

Green Anoles are small lizards that originate from the south eastern parts of the USA.
The males usually grow to an adult length of 15cm whilst the females are around half the size.
Although closely related to the iguana, Green Anoles are often referred to as the American Chameleon, due to their ability to change colour. Anoles are territorial lizards and males will fight to the death. In order to attract a mate, the males bob their heads up and down, whilst displaying a pink flap of skin on their throats, called a du- lap.
Although Green Anoles are easy to look after, they should be considered more of an ornamental lizard. Therefore, thought should be given to whether you want an animal you can handle or not.
Anoles should be provided with special UVB lighting and will need fairly high humidity.
They are best kept in a group with one male and 4-5 females, depending on the size of the enclosure.

Panther Chameleon (furcifer pardalis ) - In Stock

Originating from the island of Madagascar, Panther Chameleons are arboreal animals, living in trees & bushes.

The adult male will grow to around 16 – 22 inches with the females being around half the size.
Panther Chameleons are amongst the most colourful of chameleons, with the male being much more so than the female.
These chameleons are one of the better species to keep in captivity, as they seem to be tamer and get less stressed than some.
Chameleons are not a good starter animal for the absolute beginner, but will suit someone with experience in keeping other reptiles that require levels of humidity. They are a sensitive animal and their requirements need to be carefully catered for.

Crested Gecko (rhacodactylus cillatus) - In Stock

The Crested Gecko originates from New Caledonia and was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in 1994.

These Geckos feed on small insects and decayed fruits from the forest floor. They are primarily nocturnal and spend most daylight hours sleeping.
Crested Geckos are able to drop their tail to escape predators, but unlike other species, it will not re-grow.
As they can tolerate handling, these Geckos make an ideal starter species. They are easy to care for and only require a small amount of space. However, they can become stressed under high temperatures.

Tenerife Lizard (gallotia gallotia) - In Stock

The Tenerife or western canaries lizard is a lacertid ( wall Lizard ) species. As it’s name suggests it is found on the island of Tenerife. They inhabit dry arid terrain but will often visit orchards and vineyards as they love to eat ripe fruit which has made them unpopular. The striking colour of adult males and their curious nature has made them a tourist attraction and on Mount Teide the population has become quite tame and a bit of an attraction themselves. It has become well known with tourists that they love bananas and will readily scurry over the rocks and even jump on visitor’s hands to get to this most favoured fruit.
Whilst they can get quite tame they should be considered a visual animal as apposed to something you can handle. They are very quick and if threatened can drop their tail. This will re-grow but will not look the same as before. Due to their lively nature they require a large size vivarium to move around.

Moroccan Eyed Lizard (timon tangitanus) - In Stock

The Moroccan Eyed Lizard is only found in Morocco. They are hardy animals and make excellent captives being one of the more colourful lacertids available. Both sexes have a green colouration with males having blue dots down their flanks. Males especially become quite docile and do not mind being handled. Females can be slightly more aggressive but most handle without any problems. They are very easy to maintain but as with all reptiles the correct equipment and set up must be purchased for them to thrive. They will display best in a larger vivarium with plenty of hollow logs and plants for cover. They are a welcome addition to anyone’s reptile collection.

The tail has bands of white. The eyes are bright orange. They are strictly nocturnal, hiding away during the day. They should be considered a visual animal as they have delicate skin and do not tolerate being handled. They are also incredibly quick. Temperature and humidity levels are essential. As a tropical animal they should be housed in a large glass terrarium with plenty of cover and branches. Hollow logs make great hiding spots for them. They do not require high levels of UVB but light should be provided to create a day / night time cycle.

Giant Madagascan Day Gecko (phelsuma mad.grandis) - In Stock

They should be kept in a good sized glass terrarium with plenty of cover and branches or hollow logs placed diagonally across the enclosure. They should be considered a visual animal as they have delicate skin and do not handle well. They are also very quick. Males are quarrelsome and territorial, only allowing females into their territory. In captivity males will sometimes attack females at which point they should be separated. Generally they are best kept on there own unless breeding is required. They are spectacular animals and unlike many geckos they are active during the day making them a great display animal.

New Caledonian Giant Gecko (rhacodactylus leachianus) - In Stock

The huge size of this gecko makes it a very impressive lizard. There are two recognized subspecies both found in New Caledonia. These geckos have a large head, thick body and short tail. They are one of the largest geckos in the world. Their colour is a mixture of moss greens, browns and greys giving it perfect camouflage. They were once rare in captivity but due to increases in breeding activity they are becoming more available in the reptile trade. They are however more expensive than other geckos because they take longer to mature so their availability and relative low reproduction rates is impacted by this. For conservation reasons this animal is no longer exported from New Caledonia. They are a hardy animal and with proper care can live around 20 years. They are best housed individually. They are a nocturnal animal and do not require lighting although UVB can be used to create a day / night time cycle. Unlike some reptiles there heating requirements are low ranging from the upper 70s to lower 80s Fahrenheit. They feed on nectar and crickets. Depending on the individual some will tolerate handling whilst others will not.
