A little fun.
Can you name the species?
If no right guesses, I’ll drop a few hints. Winner gets a virtual high-five.
Jabberwocky! (I have no idea but I wanted to play too, .) Gorgeous!
Blue House lizard. LOL!
I don’t know.
I think that it is a tree monitor but it’s head looks to vividly blue to be a blue tree monitor, so I will just go with a blue tree monitor…
Edit * I think it is a baby blue tree monitor!!!
I like these games, especially when I get to take part
I’m pretty certain this is a wall lizard?
I was pretty close house has walls. Lol!
All good guesses… @eaglereptiles is technically correct and wins this round. “Italian Wall Lizard” > (Podarcis sicula klemmeri) Very rare species in the US. This next one will be a little easier.
Hint: this species is native to the New World (the Americas.)
Hands down a Chuckwalla
Excellent, great answer. Chuckwalla (Sauromalus ater), native to the southwestern United States.
Let’s see if we can keep this roll going…
Wild guess, gilla monster. The color reminds of one I saw on internet.
I don’t know where this is coming from but a leopard lizard not to be confused with a leopard gecko
A month ago I would have had no idea, but lately I have been working on 100s of different species… Which means trawling through 1000s upon 1000s of ads on MorphMarket…
A side fact:
These guys have a strange morphology, certain “morphs” are directly linked to the immune system. I’m not exactly sure of the specific details yet though, that’s all I’ve got for now.
And Wow! @lumpy you smashed that one!
Amazing work @varanexan
I saw it and I was just like oh my God I remember seeing that change in tail color in a a book that I used to look at when I was a kid
Quite an interesting note, and I raise you one: the blue coloration of P. s. klemmeri is actually a unique form of melanism. And kudos on expanding on your knowledge of species diversity.
I don’t know it kind of have the body of agamid
Red Varanus acanthurus?
Correct, Varanus pilbarensis (Pilbara rock monitor) Great work once again.
I may make this a little more challenging tomorrow, but with a twist. More participants the better, so if anyone else is following this thread, keep an eye out.
I just bumped it to” watching”
