We have thought about getting a lizard for a long time. When we came across these little fellas I instantly knew they were just the ones we were looking for. Unlike the most of the lizards we have seen in pet shops these butterfly agamas, leiolepis belliana, don’t just sleep and lay still for the most of the day. They are very active in day time and just a great joy to observe.
We didn’t want to separate these two as they were getting along so fine so got them both. They are really fond of each other; they move together and lay on top of each other and share a nest. Hopefully they will stick together later on, too.
We decided to transform our old corner aquarium to a terrarium. We have to build a bigger one when the babies grow, but for now they have all they need. Of course setting up a terrarium is not cheap, but that’s money well spent. just look at them!
