In Reply to: Beaded lizard, a question on breeders and keeping. posted by Jacob on March 01, 2002 at 00:15:02:
: Hi, I have recently contacted a number of people about getting a captive bred beaded lizard. It looks like the two that people have the most is H.h. horridum, and H.h. exespterium (sp way off). Which in your opinion is a better lizard? As far as temperment? Color? I belive that the exespterium(sp) is a high yellow color, while the horridum is a darker color with less yellow. Could some one set me stright? Also, I have been e-mailing back and forth with Zack Medinas. Has any one had good or bad dealings with this guy? He listed Jackie Lapradd, and Andrew Godambehas as people who he has done biz with. Any, if any one has had success with him and his animals please e-mail me! I have also been looking at Applegate Reptiles, I have not contacted them yet, but am thinking about it. The third person I have contacted placed an add on faunaclassifides.com his name is Charles Glut. He claims to have the most babys from one female, 17. Let me know what you think. Thanks again, Jacob. BTW, I am getting the first just to make sure I am up for it, but would like to try to breed them. Let me know.
I've been corrosponding with Zack and have found him to be a really good guy. After talking with him on the phone, I had no worries about sending cash. I've spent a small fortune on Heloderma and snakes with Bob Applegate, everything has been top notch. As far as choosing a "subspecies", I think temperment depends on the individual and color/pattern boils down to personal taste. I have one beaded that tries to kill me every time I have to deal with it. Like we always say, you should treat them all with caution, the nasty ones just remind you of that. If temperment was a concern I'd keep bearded dragons - know what I mean LOL!
