Update from Dubai

Postby vuduman » Sat Oct 27, 2012 5:23 pm

Hi guys.I realise it has been months since an update.Things are still in full steam and the park is almost complete where I shall be working soon.In the meantime,my kombuis has changed into a temparary snakeroom till the park is ready to house them.I will post a propper post once the park is open and I have a bit more time to take pics.For the meantime,here are a few of the critters I am caring for ...

Pic of the kombuis with the temparary housing and a few of the animals....

Hey Ninja

Good to hear from you again. When do you expect to have the park open. Life must really be a challenge to have your space so cramped.
Some very good looking specimens there.

Very nice snakes. I see your kombuis looks like my lounge did when I had a larger amount of lizards!! Those lizards are really cute. Do we have them in SA? I wouldn't mind a pair!!

Thanks Marion.I honestly have not seen them in the pet trade in SA,but they seem relitively cheap. So far they are doing well,on mealworms,but their food in the wild is Harvester ants,so I will let you all know how they do in the long term and if I am able to source more suitable food for them here.At the moment ,it is all I can get hold of.But certain localities of these lizzards are more hardy than others.
They are not quite as sociable as bearded dragons,but their prehistoric looks makes up for that :)
Lets hope the sexes are in favour and they do well,then maybe I will attempt to breed them.
