UROMASTIX, born in 2010 and adopted in 2013, male named Frank, gave us by a family that could no longer keep him. Died in 2016 due to a tumor.

GUIDO, born in 2004, was adopted in 2006, he lived with a couple and two cats. He was our first reptile, but even with little experience and very little information to find, we did our best to make him feel good. One of the few males of a quiet disposition, even in the breading season he never gave any problems. Affectionate and very docile, he had a very easygoing character, but he transforms at the sight of cats, the reaction is uncontrollable, we assume it is due to the previous experience. Died on 6 July 2016.

TIM, year 2007, was adopted in 2013, we are the third holders, he lived with one of the people of our previous team, where he has always been treated very well, but has a territorial temper. He must be an Alpha male, that is to say very active and unpredictable, so the person chose to bring him to us, being she alone it was not easy to manage him. We can handle him good but with due respect and always with a watchful eye on his reactions. When he is in breeding season the situation is a bit more challenging.

KYLE, year 2010, he was adopted in 2014, he lived with a girl who did not have any experiences with reptiles, in did the creature was from her ex companion, but after the separation he was abandoned by her, he lived in a decidedly unsuitable terrarium, in fact for his age it is grown little. In the meantime, he seems like a friendly guy, even if handling him is not an easy job, he doesn't trust humans, but with patience we have already achieved very satisfactory results.

JAZIRA, 2004, she was adopted in 2012, she had two previous holders, where unfortunately, lived in too many confined spaces and little time devoted to her, her dimensions were minute, malformed and missing limbs. She had complications with spawning for physical reasons, we then proceeded to sterilize her to give her a worthy life. Died on September 16, 2016.
