Collared lizards are normally found in south central United States and northern Mexico. They
inhabit deserts and plains, most live in outcroppings. They are a medium sized lizard, with large
head, long limbs and tail. As their name suggests they are known for their "collars" that encircle
the back of neck. They are exceptionally fast, and can be seen running bipedaly ( on back
legs).,,y certainly are among the most beautifully colored lizards in North America.
They are carnivores, insect eaters along with smaller lizards in the wild.
There are two forms of collared lizard , collaris and insularis. ( This was just a brief description )
please visit links I have on my care page for further information, on locales, species, etc.)

I am a private reptile hobbyist, and breeder. Over the years I have kept and cared for
many different species of lizards, frogs, and turtles. Have worked with my beloved collared
lizards since the mid 90's, and have an enormous passion for what I do. I also work with,
and breed other species of lizards such as my clown agamas, granite and desert spinys, and
the past few years have been enchanted with my snow leopard geckos. Sure can't leave out
my chuckwallas, a uromastyx, a merake blue tongue skink and a small central american
banded gecko that have lived here for many years as well. I care deeply for each of my pets.
The adult lizards pictured on my site are my personal pets, I will only sell offspring. Each
spring after the first breeding, many beautiful hatchling collareds arrive and steal my
heart, I'm truly taken by their unique personalities. They become quite friendly with
handling, and make docile pets. So full of energy, like wee acrobats. They are quite
inquisitive, and incredibly beautiful. The patterns, and colors are amazingly diverse, you will
be captivated by their beauty. About the same time my leopard geckos begin to lay their
eggs. Within a couple months adorable bright eyed, sweet little snow leopards scamper
about, making the spring and summer season joyful with all the new life.
Below are photos of many of my collareds, snow geckos and others. You can see an egg
hatching, which is a magnificent sight. Each page after is filled with colorful collareds,
frequently asked questions on care, sexing, available hatchlings, Snow geckos, and other
lizards I work with. My hope is to allow others to enjoy these stunning lizards by offering
only the finest, hand tamed, beautiful captive bred lizards I possibly can.

The leopard gecko is a nocturnal ground-dwelling lizard naturally found in the deserts of
southern Central Asia, and throughout Pakistan, to the northwestern parts of India. Unlike most
geckos, leopard geckos possess movable eyelids. It has become a well-established and
popular pet in captivity.
The native habitat of the leopard gecko is the rocky, dry grassland and desert regions of
south-Asian Afghanistan, Pakistan, north-west India, and parts of Iran. Winter temperatures in
these areas can be quite low, below 10 °C (50 °F), forcing the animals underground into
semi-hibernation, called brumation, living on fat reserves. As nocturnal creatures, they spend
the day hidden under rocks or in burrows to escape the daytime heat and emerge at dusk to
feed by hunting insects. These Geckos are solitary, and do not usually live with other animals.
