 I found a Western Slender Glass Lizard, is it illegal?

Hi, I live in california and I just caught a glass lizard. I had no clue what it was until I looked it up. I didnít even know you could find glass lizards or any type of legless lizard in california! I heard from somebody on this site that it is an endangered species. Iím wondering if it is illegal to keep one? Mine is a really good eater, so if it is legal and everything, keeping it and maybe breeding it isnít out of the question. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Well to be safe on your part you should take to any local that knows for sure if it is endangered. If it is then you can definetly be in trouble. You need to have a whole bunch of licesnces and work for a conservation group in order to keep and breed endangered species.. I would really contact any animal conservation group. Thatís what I would do.

Thanks for your feedback. I found out that they are indeed, an endangered species, but they arenít protected. Now Iím interested in breeding. The hardest part will probably be finding another. Heís already eating good and has adjusted well to captivity.

Beautiful! If he is indeed endangered, you should DEFINITELY call up the nearest zoo or herpetologist at the nearest university and get some advice. A herpetologist at the zoo or university might know of other people who can find a mate for your lizard. Plus, they can offer you advice on the best possible diet.

You shouldnít have a hard time getting in touch with the "big people" at the zoo if you just mention that you have and endangered species.

You have been given a precious gift if he is indeed endangered and should give him the best care possible! Good luck to you and congratulations on your find!

That looks more like a California legless lizard. Most snakes and lizards in California have a possesion limit of two, however the California legless lizard limit is only one I believe...

They look really cool and are very facinating but they only eat very small invertabrates. Try feeding it pinhead-size crickets, small mealworms or blood worms.

Hey I live in California and I just found a legless. Do you still have yours? If so I’d love to help. I’m pretty sure mines a female, not certain though.
