Gerrhosaurus nigrolineatus is the Black lined plated lizard.

The animal in those photos was Gerrhosaurus major boettgeri - the East African Plated Lizard, sometimes called the East African Giant Plated Lizard.

Dealers keep labeling these animals wrong.

If one of those bred with the nominate form, the Sudan or Major Plated Lizard, Gerrhosaurus major major, you would produce an intergrade and not a hybrid.

Its probably best to aquire a pair of the same species (of which the East african AND the Sudan are), and the same subspecies, and not keep males together in the same enclosure. In my experiance, when they get comfortable with thier surroundings and beging to attempt to establish territort, they will fight, or one will at least be severly stressed out by the other.
