is a cute little female Uromastyx lizard that I got last summer. She is
a vegetarian and loves anything green and leafy especially Bok Choy and any
vegetable with a bitter taste! I already had a male Red Nigerian Uromastyx
named Spike when I got her. They got along perfectly right from the start
and are very good company for each other. The male is usually brightly
colored with black stripes on their abdomen and the female is more plain and
no stripes on tummy. They mostly eat their vegetables and sleep piled on top
of each other under the heat lamp. Guya was very nervous and would try and
get away from being held when I first got her. She was not used to human
attention but now she is a big baby and loves to be held and does not try to
run when I put my hand in her aquarium. These lizards are very friendly,
gentle, easy to look after and they do not make noise or smell! They are the
best pet and I really like having them... I will be rescuing another female
soon, too. Spike will be happy, and we hope Guya will, too!
