    Our bearded dragon "Ulisse" (named after Aldrovandi) came alive the other day after many months of brumation.

    Raring to go, I introduced him to this other lizard by Miloslav Janku, Zelezny Brod, Czechoslavakia.
    All went as usual away from the heat lamp; Ulisse got cold, and went nearly as stiff as the glass.

    I love Janku's animals even though this is the only one I have.
    The green lizard is a sensual creature with long flowing lines and crystal cut eyes and spines. He sits and considers, much as Ulisse does.

    Length 30cm (12in)

    BTW - isn't Ulisse a beauty? Look at the scales and markings! (proud mother here)

      What a fabulous pair!
      Can I suggest a name for the fabulous Janku ZBS piece ..... Odisseo?
      Is it a salamander?
    2. racer4four racer4four, 7 years ago
      I believe it is a salamander Kevin.
      You are o clever! Odisseo would be the perfect name!
