Hi Eve, I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of lizards you have in your picture. I live near Vancouver, BC, Canada and I work in a warehouse. I found a lizard on a pallet from Vista, CA and he/she was pretty close to death I think when I found it. The lizard I found looks very close to what you have. The best I can do is describe it for now.
He/she is very fast, a good jumper and has quite the appetite. The tail is spiny, though part of it was missing when it was found but has grown back now. There are blue spots on either side of the belly under the arms. On the neck is a dark almost diamond shape. 3 tiny traingular scales or spines protrude from the back of the jaw. When he/she is colder or frightened the scales under the mouth seem to go a little grey. The pattern of the scales on the back resemble the lizards that you have pictured. Perhaps from this description it is nothing like what you have but I'm looking for anything right now. I am looking for any info on the type and care of this little "guy". I read that males of the spiny lizards have the blue spots?? I would like to provide a good environment to keep him happy and healthy for as long as possible. Thanks for any input/help you can give me. Thanks, Joel.
