Hi Guys!
Jobi thanks for the praise, things do seem to be going well for them, I attribute that to the guidance I got from you and Spawn! Thanks!

I appreciate the tips on their care, I was thinking they liked it hotter than the acanthosaura, but wasn't sure. The advice you gave really gives me something to work towards! I am waiting to see if the dealer can get these guys in, and, if so, their price and sex ratio. We'll see. I have a three foot cage, I am thinking 4-6 of them? It sounds like they are fairly similar to the Acanthosaura in the sense of humidity and water supply, so that's no biggie.

I just want to make sure that I get it right, males are the blue and orange color, and females are devoid of said colors? They are just greens? I have to be able to tell the dealer, they haven't worked with this species yet. I am really excited!

I also have a question about Acanthosaura, I have about 45 eggs incubating now, with what appear to be more on the way, but my females don't really seem to "bounce back" after they lay. They still eat, they just seem weakened. They don't get skinny, or act limp, just not their former energetic selves. If that makes sense... Also, when you get acanthosaura eggs, do all of them hatch in a given clutch? I usually loose a few, or sometimes whole clutches save one or two. Does it sound like I am doing something wrong in terms of incubating them? My temps fluctuate from 72/75F-80/83F. That seems right and the humidity is never below 68-70%. I even mist the eggs if I notice them denting, this seems to revive them. I haven't had any hatch yet, as I haven't been keeping them that long, but still, after all this work I sure would like to!

As a little side note, the grandis are doing very well. They have the most adorable little "pot" bellies! But they still think they are crocodiles, they will bite like crazy! Well, thanks to you both so much for all your help. And jobi, your lizards are beautiful!!!



Regards,
Robert
