The Lizard List

Since I talk about them so much...

 

Allow me to present: My lizards!

 

Bearded Dragon:

Norbert, Male

Nicknames: Testicle, Ballsack, Carrot

Citrus Silkie.

He is a grump. Norbert knows only hate. All he does is glare and occasionally hisses when you pick him up. He is the most dominant of the lizards and head bobs at everything, including anyone with a beard. But he loves me. And apparently no one else. He's perfectly content to sit on my lap and be comfortable. He's had a pretty rough life. He only has like 5 toes total. Plus a bunch of scars and missing the tip of his tail.

 

Jacksons Chameleon

Khadgar - Male

Brand new. Very active!

 

Gargoyle Geckos:

Ramoth, Female

Reticulated

Ramoth is a lump. She seriously never moves. She's one of my breeders and is easily the most relaxed lizard I have. 

 

Orlith, Female

Reticulated

This poor lady has had a rough life. The top of her head is mostly scar tissue because she was cohabbed in a 20g with two others and one of the three was a jerk. She's a very friendly lady and doesn't move much more than Ramoth.

 

Mnementh, Male

Blotch

He was my steal. Snagged him at a show after a friend screamed across the floor to me to let me know he existed. I proceeded to have people stop me to ask me where I got him the rest of the show. He lives life upside down, dangling from the top of his cage. He's jumpy and I'm still working on socializing him.

 

Crested Geckos:

This'll be a big list!

Kalecgos - Brindle, fat, lazy, frogbutt female

Malygos - Halloween, friendly, greedy, hopefully a future breeder! Never fires down.  Female!

Nozdormu - Jumpy, brindle, unsexed.

Ysera - Brindle? Hider, glutton, literally never fires up. Female

Lilly - Rescued with Ysera and Kalecgos. Brown, frogbutt, originally owned by @Aerona Female.

Sabellian - Brown/Dalmation, fraidy cat, I frequently think he's dead, unsexed

Fred - Pinstripe. Super small. Very orange.

George - Imperfect Pinsripe. Super small. Very orange.  Tries very hard to die.

Karynaku - Brindle/Dalmation.  Pretty relaxed. Jumps everywhere. Lives in a pool noodle and stares. Female

Vaelastrasz - White/black. Not sure on pattern yet. SUPER fat.

 

Leopard Geckos

These guys started the obsession.

 

Iskierka, Female Albino

The first one! Iskierka hates all. She spontaneously screams. She doesn't want you around, doesn't want you to look at her, doesn't want anything touching her. I love her.

 

Lien, Normal, Female

The fatass. She will eat nonstop. I have to cut her off. She is a princess and very friendly. She's easily the most curious of everyone.

 

Messoria, Tremper Albino, Female

Not the brightest bulb in the box, Messoria makes up for it with personality. She's nearly blind, dumb as a box of rocks, but likes being held, exploring and bathing in her calcium.

 

Perscitia/Calliope, Normal, Female

Adopted this one from my friend because she loves me and weirdly hates said friend. We have no idea why. 

 

Whites Tree Frog

Pap AKA Tubs, Tubba-jubb, The Blob

Pap was an accident. She came with Ysera and Kalecgos when I picked them up. She doesn't move much. I'm trying to find her a buddy.

 

Roger AKA Roger-Roger!

Roger was obtained solely because I felt bad that Pap was alone. He is tiny and I am slowly working on fattening him up. He croaks!

 

Salvatore 

Salvatore was obtained because I felt bad that ROGER was alone. He jumps at faces.

 

Karen AKA Damnit, Karen!

Karen was accidentally "sold" with Salvatore. Meaning they didn't charge me for her. She is sneaky.

Can any animal be unsexed? I mean, the other lizzards are male and female.

 

(Spayed/ neutered, I understand. But I never heard the term unsexed for it. Hearing "unsexed" tells me that animal has no sex... therefore all the animals of that kind are the exceptions having no sex. And then how they multiply? By division?)

In the herp world, unsexed means they are too young to show sexual characteristics. All my unsexed are either juveniles or the lone skink, and skinks are kind of a crapshoot for gendering.

My two eldest juvies are getting old enough to start showing, so if they suddenly have balls I'll know!

I have never thought that any animal could be too young to show its gender. I mean, all of them have to piss since babies...

With lizards, you usually sex them by looking at the pores. Since their babies can be tiny, this requires a jeweler's loupe and you can get females presenting false pores or just none at all. It's a pain, so most are sold unsexed or after they've begun to show (in males, this means BALLS! In females, more pore definition.) The balls are actually their hemipene, (they get two dicks!)  Reptiles don't pee in the usual fashion. They pass urate, like birds. Dry white bits with their feces. 

 

Here's a guide on sexing cresties: 20107c94905961f658afbcc45efb74bf--crested-gecko-geckos.jpg (720×525)

 

Here's a less complicated one:

All the geckos in those images are old enough to show an obvious bulge. It's harder when they're ~2-4 inches big and have no desire to sit still!

Very difficult to notice - and very strange indeed.

Lizards get complicated. xD

 

Whats EXTRA fun is that some species you can't sex. You can GUESS based on structure, but there's no guarantee. The fact that the hobby is, compared to breeding other animals, new makes it all the more exciting! They thought crested geckos were extinct until the late 80s!
