This page will show some of the agamids I

have been working with for the last dozen

years. You will see the breeders (parents)

as well as some of the babies they've

produced. Even some of the eggs as they

begin to pip and hatch their way out of

the eggs. 




The blue headed agama is one of the most colorful with the males especially while displaying their vibrant blue heads and a mixtures of blues and limes from their snouts to their tail tips.

The clown agama are one of the calmest of the L stellio groups. These are my favorite as far as being quite  personable and also  very calm when handled. They vary in color phases with the darker being the more sought after. I have been working  primarily with the black phase clowns for a few years now and most of the babies I produce carry the dark color gene due to  some safe inbreeding.

Ladaukia stellio picea
Father and daughter

The Ladaukia stellio picea (orange spotted agama) are not as common here in the USA. I am one of the first breeders to produce cbb (captive bred and born) babies here in the states which occurred this year (2008).


The males and females are similar in their dark brown color with the bright orange spots and bands from snout to tail tip. Some males when sexually mature (as early as yearlings) will display a black ground color with some sprinkles of blue on their backs and blue color on their forearms and thighs.


In the first photo you can see my ALFA male who displays just that blackish color as well as some blue spotting and also blue highlighting on the legs … very handsome year old male. He shares the photo with one of his four month old offspring.


In the second photo you will see five of the fore mentioned male’s hatchlings just hours after hatching. The third photo is of a clown agama and an orange spotted agama just after hatching. You can see the size difference in the two stellio sub species as the orange spotted agama are smaller as are the eggs they hatch out from.
