Hey everyone, my HL's are warmed up to me and today the shyer one was standing on its hind legs against the glass as many lizards do. I noticed it didn't have a speckled belly like my other one does. I had thought both were desert horned lizards and they look very similar in color and pattern on the top. The one that doesn't have a speckled belly also buries itself during the middle of the day while the more courages one stays on the surface pretty much all the time and has only buried itself once. So my question is could I possibly have two different species or do some DHL's have spotted bellies while others don't? I guess it doesn't make that much of a difference but I wouldn't expect to be sold two different species that are the same age, color, and size at the same time. I would really appreciate anyone's input. Thank you!
