V salvadorii breeding and photos from Vital Exotics!

Its been 12 yrs since I first started reading everything I could get my hands on about V. salvadorii….It took me a while to get into the position to own some of these great animals and the space to set them up. 4 yrs ago I picked up my first female. Now I have 1.2.1 and things are starting to fall into place with them.

I have 2 females that have been introduced to my big male. The first has cycled for me before, with no breeding or eggs laid, but this cycle seems to be different. She has been with the male for the entire month of November and December up until I introduced him to my other cycling female on Jan 1 2014. I observed interest from the male at times, but no copulations were observed. Although she is showing some very positive signs…time will tell if this cycle is different or not. I have 12’ x 6’ x 6’ of floor space heated, with different temp ranges available, and a good sized elevated nest box filled with substrate, so hopefully she is able to find a suitable nest site in the enclosure. This will be her first clutch. Based on my experience and her “signs” she should be around 1-2 weeks out from laying.

Here are some photos of her and the male:









Female getting big:




Courtship time for the male and my other female. Introduced January 1 2014. Courtship started right away and I have witnessed breeding action each day since then. This female has nested a clutch of infertiles for me last cycle, buried well. So hopefully she is happy with her nesting options as well.

WOW! Fantastic photos. It looks like something out of National Geographic magazine. Beautiful animals, but they look like they could inflict some serious damage to a person if they were not very careful around them. Good luck with your breeding project. How large is the male?

Congrats man, very cool. I've always wondered, how did you manage to get that pic on the log without having him take the highroad.

Re: V salvadorii breeding and photos from Vital Exotics!

I love the last photo of your male peeking over the log. It reminds me of the scene in Jurassic Park where the great big game hunter is stalking (so he thinks) the large female velociraptor right before she pokes her head out of the bushes right next to him and makes a meal out of him Your lizards immediately make me think of dinosaurs. Also, I'm with Lankyrob on this one. Even though I'm not really a lizard person, I could look at photos of your animals every day. Thanks for sharing.

That is so impressive. I swear, that last picture gave me goosebumps. It made me think of the part in Jurassic Park when the T-rex looks through the window of the Jeep and the pupil dilates. Lol. EPIC animals.

Re: V salvadorii breeding and photos from Vital Exotics!

If i ever make it to America is it possible to come see these guys in the flesh? I am not aware of any zoos over here that have them (may well be wrong)
