Dwarf sungazers.
we have a pair ourselves.

i thought the actual armadillo lizards would be quite impossible to get hold of.

not impressed now really. they have come via a well known shop on bristol and i specifically asked for cordylus cataphractus armadillo lizards so to find out they are not even classed as armadillo lizards in what you might say just a littled pee'd off.

good luck mate...
please let me know how the babies get on and how many there are etc, im very curious.
im trying to get hold of someone i know who has bred them to find out about whether the babies must be seperated etc as you asked dude.

if you were sold them as armadillo lizards then the shop needs to do its research a bit better, hope you didnt pay ott money for them either.
They are great though, we love our pair.

bad news. i think the stress of everything was to much as the baby was still born. gutted. i think i will be asking questions tomorrow as to why i have been given these after specifically asking for cataphractus not dwarf gazers. as said earlier they have originally came from the well known shop in bristol and beleive i have been fooled into buying something i was led to believe was what i ordered.
will have to see what they say.
started of a good day and has yet again turn sour

that sucks mate.
its such a huge coincidence her given birth as soon as they arrive that i cant help but wonder if it was not ready and she pushed it out early due to the stress of the move or whatnot.
gutted for you whatever happened.

That's such a shame. Poor wee thing. Did you know she was expecting?
