Now is a good time of year to get them, before it gets too hot. I saw several juvenile chucks out basking a few weeks ago. I think Nevada is one of the few places left a hobbyist can still collect without some sort of permit. No state income tax and it's legal to catch lizards..way to go Nevada.

I like your outdoor set up. It's the type of thing I would expect to see at a Zoo or at the Sonoran Desert Museum. Mine is a simple 8' x 8' enclousure that I built following the example on Gus's(riobravoreptile) website. It's a lot better than the outdoor cages I used to have years ago which were made entirely of wire and screen. The animals would climb on the sides and rub their noses. With my current enclosure, the hispidus seem really content. I might try to grow some cactus or wildflowers in it like you have done. It would be nice to have a constant food source if I'm away on vacation.

Your CB ater are very nice. Do you have any pictures of your Calico chucks? I'm curious how their coloring is.
