Spring in Scandinavia, usual suspects

Temps around 6 C (low 40´s F) and sunshine called for a quick visit to greet the first reptiles from hibernation. Viviparous Lizard and Adder, in situ. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7620/16767408092_5057d350a8_c.jpg Zootoca vivipara by lundqvist.jimmy , on Flickr https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7648...

I have previously observed similar behaviour by my knoblochi´s.
These two are supposed to be males (never sexed them myself), and I assume its a male combat and not mating behaviour?

laticinctus is a montane tropical species from Cameron Highlands just north of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Average daytime temps year round 75-80 (23-27 C), and around 53-60 (12-15 C) at night. So keeping the temps from rising is probably the biggest challenge, at least during hotter summer months. The p...

What I´ve read its important to feed smaller prey, and i usually give mine 3-5 fuzzies each feeding, and havent had any regurgitation at all. The temps are lower 80´s daytime and low 70´s at night. Summertime a bit warmer as the room gets warmer.
