We have had some super exciting arrivals, 6 baby Peruvian Bush Anoles, the first to hatch in the UK and one of very few hatchlings in captivity worldwide!
On the 20th of February the first of the clutch a baby named Bean, emerged from his egg after a long 7 month incubation. Also known as Peruvian Monkey lizards these reptiles have a prehensile tail meaning it can use it like a 5th limb, gripping on to branches as it climbs.
Anoles are South America’s answer to the chameleon having independent eyes, a shaky walk and even tucking into similar dinners. Since hatching the babies have been feasting on baby crickets, locusts and even cockroaches as they have a lot of growing to do.
