    Possible Anerythristic Southern Alligator Lizard

    So I was raking outside when uncovered what I think is an anerythristic southern alligator lizard. At first I thought it could be melanistic but after I looked at this website http://www.californiaherps.com/lizar....m.webbii.html I realized it looked like the possible anerythristic lizard displayed. What do you all think? [IMG][/IMG]

    Well 66 views and no replies, I am guessing people haven't seen an alligator lizard like this before. Anyone got any name ideas? I am guessing it's a girl by the head shape.

    I am not sure I've even ever seen an Alligator Lizard period. .

    Neat looking critter. Not sure on name though.

    It does seem to resemble the anerythristic one the most. They're cool lizards...saw a lot of them when I lived in CA, but never kept any. I think they do better outside
    anyway, with natural sunshine & food variety. I once kept a desert iquana for a while only until it recovered fully...it almost drowned in someone's stock tank. When I
    tried to release it (after about a week), it ran back up my arm & sorta paused, as in disbelief "really, I can go now?" -then took off like a streak of lightning.

    Re: Possible Anerythristic Southern Alligator Lizard

    They are super cool lizards! Super intelligent, colorful, and small, what more could you ask for (except picking up after themselves). I feed the ones I have a very diverse diet and the best ting is they aren't picky eaters. They are so food motivated that I've had to target train them so they won't go after my fingers. The ones I have are thriving in captivity and it has been really rewarding to see their less aggressive side once you work with them a bit. Right now I have a big 13" male, a high red backed female, and this newest one (still needs a name). I am going to make a progression thread for them soon so that anyone who wants to can see them as well.
