Hey,
The one in the picture is a male which is why there is blue. Secondly like many other curly tail species there are multiple subspecies: Though I am not 100% sure of the species or subspecies due to lack of species descriptions and photos. I will look through my books though to see if I can 100% ID the lizard. Either way though they are hardy animals and their care is simple so good luck.

:Thanks Devlin,
:But I found a picture of L. strictigaster on line and although he looks similar, Butch's underside is very spotted rather than striped. Butch doesn't have the blue spots on the side either. Is this individual variation or a mystery lizard?

:Thanks,

::Both the northern and exuma island curly tails are sub species of Leiocephalus carinatus, but I think you have a L. strictigaster. Though I don't know for sure, the greatest problem being lack of photographs of the seperate species and subspecies.
