Hiya guys! I just thought I'd share some great news! I've been pretty lucky lately in finding specific animals I'm looking for and I just posted about my new giant Asian mantis who I have since named Lee (long story.) Now I got an email a couple days ago that a species of lizard I've been waiting to be available for a long time was back in stock and I ordered one! For anybody who might not know this lizard is native to the American southwest, Northern Mexico and some parts of the central/eastern U.S. It's an eastern collared lizard! Though technically it's called a common collared lizard but many people just sell them as easterns despite the fact they barely live in the east. The adult males are incredibly beautiful with blue and yellow coloration and attractive patterns and though I hope I have a male the lizard is too young to tell yet and even females have the same patterns if not the color so I'm happy either way. Color wise this has been my favorite lizard since I was a kid and I saw one in a book I had. If I could confirm the lizard was male I was originally going to name him Cochise after the legendary Apache chief since this is a very southwestern lizard but for the sake of being gender neutral I went with Yuma after Yuma Arizona with it's long frontier history.
