Captive Chuckwalla breeding from last week. I previously had a different male in the cage with the 2 females. However, he did no head bobbing and seemed to have no interest in breeding. The male in this pic is a wild animal and was placed in the cage to stimulate breeding. It worked! Both animals began head bobbing as soon as they saw each other. The wild male ran over to the older captive male and bit him, than saw the female and immediately mated with her. They were paired up over 10 minutes, longer than I suspected. He then went over to the food dish and ate 2 Coreopsis and a Hisbiscus. Possibly the tamest Chuckwalla I have ever seen, shows no signs of fear when I approach. I released the other male in the wild where I had found him.....
