  • Abronia

    Just wanted to post some pics of the our Abronia graminea and Abronia taeniata... I hope to pick up A. deppi next year if everything works out...

    Great and amazing little lizards, such personality. I was lucky to have one of our females drop 6 babies this mid summer.

    Enjoy the pics

              I must admit I'm jealous. Very nice group! I've always wondered though, and couldn't seem to find the answer, are the males blue or is it just a random coloration or something? I've noticed the blue tinted kinds and the green ones, and wasn't sure if that's a gender thing or not.

                In most cases males are always prettier (brighter green) while females tend to be dark. But that is not always the case, some females are just as green or as bright as some males. The "blue" comes from a lack of a certain vitamen or nutrient. You will see that alot of animlas that are green originally green turn blue in captivity. There is something missing in there diet that gives them the green hue. Some people have been able to keep the bright green coloration by feeding field collected insects, offering feeders gutloads with carotens, and by offering the animals direct sunlight. I have soem success with gutloading my inects and feeding field collected insects. But I do have one male that went blue, and is now slowly getting his green back.

                  Oh wow, I had no idea they do that. That sounds pretty useful, at least you can see the changes in color first before they have something more serious happen to them. Figures though, I preferred the blueish color to the green, but they're beautiful either way at least.

                    (wipes drool off laptop) Wow! Those are such awesome animals! I love the blue ones too. So does that mean blue is a bad thing for them?


                    Lol, typing that I got the mental image of them going code blue to show health issues. Is there a code red? Or purple?
