Hi

I am new to this forum!

I bought these two lizards at a Reptile Show two weeks ago. The vendor said they were chuckwallas but I cannot seem to find any lizards that look like these! They are supposed to be around a year old and wild caught. The larger one (female?) is 10 inches and 105 grams. The smaller, darker one (male?) is 9 inches and 55 grams.

Both are eating lots of veggies and greens. They seem to like each other! When approached they puff a little but when held they are calm and just sit there.

Their fecal came back with mild pinworms but vet said no treatment is necessary.

Please let me know if these are chuckwallas or another type of lizard!

I just realized that I don't know how to post photos! Please help!

Thank you!
