Ok so I need to clear this up...I just found out that the smaller one is a jeweled sided curly tail lizard. Petco’s mistake...sorry guys.

Do you know how to sex them? Using the post-anal scales to determine if its a male. . .

The larger is definitely a pink bellied swift by what I see. & frogfreak is just wrong(sry). The other one is noticeably a different type of lizard. Does curlytail’s tail curl? I cant tell by the picture...

Regular curly tail:

I also meant to tell you that, from what I’ve read & learned, the bigger lizard is probably a female & the smaller a male. Post anal scales is the best way I know to determine. Or if you have two males, they’ll normally fight quite a bit. They definitely can’t mate, or lay clutches, so if you see that you know someone’s a girl, if the eggs aren’t fertilized you have two females or two lizards that can’t or won’t make babies. Petco is retarded where you are apparently, the chain pet-retailers are often wrong about reptiles, herps, etc, because knowing a specific type of lizard isn’t required by all the team members on the floor, & the person how helps you is the same person that bags crickets & fish, & sweeps, & answers questions about dog-food, etc. Normally there are only a few specialists, or reptile-knowledgeable employees at each store.

I think Jd is right. The larger one resembles a pink bellied swift, while as the other lizard definately looks like a curly-tailed lizard.
