This is it.! . the sun has returned and our Chucks are entirely lovin' it!
.
These are the Puerto Penasco, Mexico chuckwallas.. they stay out year-round but only become active again when the sun gets HOT and HEAVY.. The flowers are a favourite.. I suggest anyone wanting to keep these beautiful and friendly lizards long term with a focus on best health and reproduction look to supplying seasonal flowers.. these are Coreopsis..
.

.
.. I take my Isla Angel de la Guarda or Hispidus chucks inside for the coolest part of the year.. Here's me putting some of them back into their habitats..
.

.

.
.. really great lizards. These adults are now twenty inches or more.
.

.

.
.. the Mexico chucks in general, and the Hispidus chucks especially really like the new growth on Opuntia cactus.
.


.. here's one of last year's kids that stayed here.
.

.
It's great to see these fascinating critters out and having so much fun!
.
Thanks.. have a great day!
.
