Ollie's closeup
...thoughts from Ollie's peasized brain...
HOWDY BUCKAROOS! I'm Ollie, a long nosed leopard lizard. I hail from Murrietta, Nevada but I currently hang my hat in San Diego. Although I was born August 2004, I'm a hardcore Democrat. But above all else, I loves them crickets!

Don't count your lizards before they hatch

Laying eggs
Paris in the process of laying out the third egg.

Paris laid three eggs yesterday. Not certain if they're fertilized (Vic's the father) but here's hoping to three baby lizards in six weeks. The eggs are currently lying in wait in a Hova-bator. The size of the egg is roughly one inch and should grow in size in the upcoming weeks. Next lizard to lay eggs... Nicky! Should happen any day now.

Interesting fact: if the incubator temperature is the same temperature, the lizards will all be the same sex. Fluctuating temperatures will produced mixed sexes.

Wow! Amazing! And now I see how the hatchlings get to be so big: the egg grows after laying... amazing!
