: : they are texas hl. they are for a fact male and female. it is just that when the male gets close he will lick her and she will lift her tail vary high in the air, and it looks like her butt opens up some. he will lick her under the tail, and check her out. then he will go about his business.

: :Charlie, when you say Texas HLs, do you mean Phrynosoma cornutum or Phrynosoma modestum? Some folks do not know the difference and are not properly identifying the HLs by the right common name. Lester G. Milroy III

lester i am not as advanced in HLs as you, but i do know a good bit about them and have ben studing them for some time. there can only be but one texas and that is the phrynosoma cornutum. i know i know they are protected as thretend and i under stand this, and that the care and dedication to keep them happy and not just alive is very very hard. i have had a succesful time so fare the female i have had less than a year and she is a lot healther than the wild raised male i have resently acquiered. he is starting to get a little thick him self. they are eating about a 1000 ants a week along with mealworms, crickets,and waxworms. they are about 3in long so the male is about full grown and the female has a little longer to go yet. i have them in a 40g short tank with about 4in of sand, a water bowl, some rocks for decore, a fullspectrum light, and a 100w incondicent light for extra light and lots of heat. i feed them every day. they are still wild animals but have goten used to me watching them. they cary on with me watching them. i have wached them eat, play, and even talk to each other with body languge.
