This is Beta, a young adult male Fence Lizard. He was caught as a baby and tolerates close inspection. He shares a 40 g breeder with a smaller male Fence Lizard and an Eastern Glass Lizard. We have plans to snag him a bride soon.

Nice find! :clap: I've found Western fence lizards in northern California . . . they're really cool, but a PAIN to catch.

I love that blue they have!

No; easy to catch, pain to release. :p

Released the smaller male today as the larger one was chasing the smaller and both were doing displays at each other. Took his picture before letting him go. Now to find a female.

Funny thing the other day. I had a container of roaches sitting out next to the lizard cage while feeding the Ts. I hear this scratching noise and look over to see both fence lizards scabbling at the glass, desparately trying to get at the roaches.

Lovely male; I had a fence lizzard as a child, and they're very beautiful. Fun to watch, too.

My fence lizard enclosure is next to the leopard gecko tank, and he does that when I feed the gecko first... it's hilarious. :}

Darn...I should have seen this before I caught a skink and released it.
