Blue Spiny Lizard - Sceloporus cyanogenys

The Blue Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus cyanogenys) is an arboreal Lizard species that is uncommon in captivity but is very well suited to life in captivity as they are small, easy to feed and easy to look after. They are very similar in appearance and personality to Tree agamas from Southern Africa and Bearded Dragons from Australia. They do well on a diet of crickets, wax worms, silk worms, meal worms, super worms and even fuzzies and roaches occasionally. Though they aren't that commonly kept this can make a good lizard for beginner to intermediate keepers. Not on of my personal favorites but they can be very rewarding to keep and do well in captivity. A small lizard species well suited for captivity.
