>>I got this guy at a show. I couldn't leave a 15" lizard bent almost double in a small enclosure. The guy that had it told me he was an adult Sudan he had kept in his shop for "a long time" and that it ate only crickets. After doing some checking I believe it is a Gerrhosaurus validus. He has eagerly gobbled up romaine, frozen mixed veggies I use for my uro, and a pinkie mouse. The only things that worry me is that he is very dull, unlike the photos I have seen. Also, shouldn't a valdus be much bigger? Any info will be appreciated.

Do you have a picture that you can post or e-mail?

My validus, Clyde is about 80cm (2 feet) long, though I have no idea how old he is. He's not very "bright", being just a plain dull brown with two yellow stripes; the scales on his belly are tan with brown patterns.

I've had great success with Clyde; he's turned into a very friendly companion. If you have any questions, people here are quite helpful.
