What do Lizards eat?


Yemen Chamaeleon

Native to the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen and Saudi Arabia, the Yemen (veiled) Chamaeleon features green and yellow striped patterns with black patches situated strategically all over its body which gives them an appealing look from any angle! Chameleons have unique eyes which can move independently of one another and provide 360-degree vision. They can also shoot their tongues out approximately 2.5 times their body length to capture their insect prey off-guard.

Bearded Dragon

Bearded dragons are a semi-arboreal species, native to central and southern Australia. They are known for their ability to burrow in substrate, as well as their tendency to climb trees in their natural habitat to get a better view of their surroundings. Bearded dragons come in a variety of colours and patterns, which can be selectively bred to create specific morphs. These lizards shed their skin in patches, and it can sometimes take up to a week for the shedding process to be completed A juvenile Bearded Dragon will shed its skin every few weeks, while an adult will only shed 2-3 times a year.

Crested Gecko

Native to tropical forested areas of Southern New Caledonia, the Crested Gecko is an amazing climbing animal that can adhere to solid surfaces with its hundreds of microscopic hairs. An arboreal species, the Gecko has the most amazing climbing abilities due to hundreds of tiny hairs called setae. This allows them to cling and climb on solid surfaces, even glass without a problem.

Leopard Geckos

Leopard Geckos, (Eublepharis macularius) are crepuscular animals, meaning that they become more active during twilight hours. In their natural habitat, Leopard Geckos can be found in rocky or grassy areas as well as sandy deserts. While they are typically brown or tan in colour, there are now many morphs available, including Eclipse, Snow, Tangerine and Blizzard. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced hobbyist, the Leopard Gecko makes a great companion.

Green Anole

The Green Anole is arboreal lizard native to the South-Eastern United States. They are typically green or brown in colour, with females can be easily identified by a white dorsal stripe that runs from the back of their head to the base of their tail. Green Anoles have the ability to change colour, depending on their mood and temperature.
