We have acquired some captive produced Heloderma alvarezi or the Chiapan Beaded Lizard a subspecies of The Mexican Beaded Lizard (Heloderma horridum).
Heloderma alverezi as described by Bogert and Marti’n Del Campo in 1956 ranges from northern Chiapas in Mexico, the depression of the Rio Lagartero in Huehuetenango to extreme northwestern Guatemala. Heloderma alvarezi is one of the most mysterious and least known sub species of H.horridum. Its coloration can be a dark chocolate or jet black and has a pretty sedate lifestyle, mostly nocturnal in nature hiding in deep burrows during the day and coming out at night to feed on slow moving small mammals, birds and their eggs and babies. I hope to be able to breed this rare subspecies of Beaded Lizard, one of only two lizards known to posses a true venom.
I hope to breed these and be able to offer to the local hobbyist, I am keeping them housed together in a very large indoor enclosure and so far there has been no negative interactions between them. On Oct. 1, 2021 observed on the over night CCTV review was two of our Beaded Lizards appearing to be engaged in mating, courtship. We are VERY excited and hope we can produce some of these amazing lizards here in Indonesia.
This photo was taken the day they arrived, looking VERY skinny and malnourished IMO!
Amazing to watch his tongue lapping up the raw quail eggs.
I am very happy & proud to report since I got back into breeding Varanids in 2018 I have produced 86 (various) forms of Albino V. salvators and that includes the worlds first "Super form" or as I called them Snow-Blind, for a total of 23 heads to date. 54 "normal" HETS (various) forms have been produced as well for a total of 143 CB Biawak. Some VERY exciting pairings are taking place now so I am hopeful to produce some more high quality biawak
