First block: on the hunt for H. suspectum, adults in their habitat
The English text has been updated with the German original
There is no longer any discussion: in nature Heloderma suspectum eggs hatch in the late fall, in the year the eggs are laid. (see ref. 67).
My book "Heloderma suspectum" will be published in a scientific edition of CHIMAIRA in English and German (Die Gila- Krustenechse).
It will be a year of many wonderful colored hatchlings. Inquiries will be accepted in late October.
Search for publisher
My book with about 200 pages, 290 pictures is completed. The next step will be to find a publisher.
Progress of book
My book is completed and the first revive is done. I spent a lot of time on it – but on the other hand – it gave me a lot of excitement. All chapters of this web site have been reorganized and updated with additional information., e. g. , the chapter REPRODUCTION gives the breeder many new instructions and insights for a successful hatching. It is on its way to California for a second review by Karl Switak, a very experienced herpetologist.
