Endlich sind sie da, die drei neuen Mitbewohner 😁
Es sind zwei Cordylus beraducci und ein Cordylus tropidosternum.
Es sind wahrscheinlich alle Weiblichen, werde die Gruppe erstmal so zusammen lassen wie sie war. Wenn sich doch nochmal einer als Männchen herausstellen sollte werde ich beide Arten trennen und zwei Gruppen machen damit sie sich nicht kreuzen, falls das überhaupt möglich ist. Fürs Erste werde ich mich an der dreier Konstellation erfreuen.

This is a girdled lizard found in the Eastern Cape and they are quite exceptional... Cape Girdled Lizards are normally rupicolous, and can be seen basking in the sun on rocks and boulders. This specific population of Eastern Cape girdled lizards lives in an area where there is no/very few rocks or boulders.
You hear them before you see them. Often it is a very dark little darting shape underfoot as they dart from their sunning slots in dead and decaying vegetative matter to the shelter of vegetation refugia and thickets. We have watched them hunt actively amongst Aloe plants, foraging for insects and spiders amongst the spiny leaves.
They also give the impression of being smaller and darker than our Cape Girdled lizards which we observe frequently in the Western Cape.
This population was deemed a seperate species, Cordylus tasmani, 3 times since 1943. They keep on being absorbed back into Cordylus cordylus based on 6 genetic markers, but their habits and habitat use, as well as their appearance differs vastly from C cordylus.
Hopefully one of our bright young Herpetologists will one day start a project which takes it all into regard, genetics, habits and morphology... maybe these small little spiky lizards will shine in their right again 🤗
Egbert update! Very gentle, but also still very shy and skiddish. He seems to be getting more acclimated to his new home every day, though! Hopefully he continues to settle in as well as he has so far ❤️🍳 #platedlizard#girdledlizard#madagascanplatedlizard
Common girdled lizard or girdle-tailed lizard (Cordylus vittifer). Family Cordylidae. I found a large number of them this morning, but only got a few decent photos. They are very difficult to approach without letting them dive into the cracks. The second photo shows the typical defensive posture of most Cordylids, with the spiky tail presented to the intruder. There are many similar species to this one in the Cordylus genus from different parts of Southern Africa, but this one can be identified by a collar of slightly elongated scales behind the head. Some research suggests that this species might actually represent a species complex rather than just a single species. Photo taken 1 March 2019.
