 I know this is the collards section, but leopard lizard?

I’m asking here because there isn’t a section for these guys and their set-up/habitat is almost identical to collards, plus they’re cousins, i believe?

Well anyways, does anyone here keep these? I just got myself a little captive bred 5/6 month old and i gotta say he’s amazing!!! O_O I’m so used to lazy lizards like leo’s and beardies and water dragons! His personality is fantastic!! Though he needs a lot of time spent with him i think he’s absolutly fantastic to watch! I could sit there all day and watch him dig his burrows in the sand and run up and down!

Well anyways, here’s a pic of my little Bender (cleverly named because he was born with a 90 degree kink in his tail) and a few pics of his tank below:

Hey, welcome aboard. Leopards and collards are so close they can even interbreed, so this seems like a logical forum.

I’ve caught and kept Leopard Lizards several times. This is my favorite "local" carnivorous lizard! They do indeed have alot of personality, always curious. I fed mine insects and smaller lizards. Your set up looks good. Keep it warm and dry for them. Good luck!

ok, first things first.... STOP SHOUTING AT ME

secondly, i live in the UK. Seems they’re illegal in the US? But they’re perfectly legal here and becoming more common. Thirdly, i don’t have him anymore. His requirements were too much and I gave him to someone who could look after him better and give him what he needed.

hey Kelso dude, if i couldnt keep a pet, i would give it to someone who will care for it! she gave it away because she couldn’t keep up with is cage and give him someone who could, instead of just getting rid of him. so you be quiet because you probally got rid of pets too. and by the way.... Awsome Lizard! i never heard of Leopard Lizards, i have a leo geckko and a collared lizard.

Thanks Meejee... ps i’m a bloke! XD

And yer, i wanted to give him what he needed but it was a constant battle with the temps. Not so much keeping them, but more trying not to burn his decor while keeping them so high to meet his needs! Once melted the damn cord on the thermostat :( And this was a risk to the poor guy so in the end i just gave in and decided my best option was to give him to someone who had more experience with such high temps. I didn’t want to cos he was such an awesome little man! So get off yer high horse, Kelso... save it for some scrote that needs a bang in the head!

Nice collard, Meejee! I’m loving his colours!
