Spring is in the air

The Chinese Crocodile Lizards (Shinisaurus crocodilurus) in the ReHerp collection are gradually awakening from their winter rest. One after the other they are becoming active and exploring their newly furnished housings. The additional shady areas we created apparently stimulate the animals. Some of them already take food, wax moth larvae or earthworms are the preferred items. Generally the lizards seem to have overcome the winter period well. It surely is a pleasure to see the animals displaying their natural habits.
