Adoptable Animals

Here at the Northern Colorado Herpetological Society we want our adoptable animals to find their perfect forever homes and we want adopters to find their perfect match. So we want to encourage a dialogue between the adopters and our adoption counselors by talking one on one about our animals and their needs in a forever home. If you are interested in adopting one of our animals please send us a message!

Adoptable Animals

Compass Rose and Magnetic North were surrendered together and these two turtles would love to find a quiet home together. They are quite shy with people and prefer their privacy. They are eager eaters and have a blast playing with ping pong balls and other floating objects while no one is looking (but we’ve got cameras!). Basking is another favorite past time for these two.

Suraj is a shy and quiet type. He spends much of his time snuggled up in his favorite hides and usually only comes out to explore in the dead of night. We suspect he may have some vision problems and needs to be hand fed his meals.


Soraya is a sweet and curious leopard gecko. She prefers the night life and loves hunting for her food. Novelty items seem to interest her and she is always watching the world around her. Soraya does well for handling would love a home that would allow her to experience new things often at her own pace.


Baashir prefers to lead and not follow. He can be Feisty for feeding and loves to chase down his food. Baashir would prefer an adult only home where he can be handled infrequently.


Grinch came to us around Christmas of 2019 and while he had a somewhat spunky attitude at first his heart is growing 5x the size and becoming more friendly by the day! He keeps his enclosure very tidy and loves to hunt crickets in his pastime. Grinchy is looking for a home where people like to admire him, but not handle him constantly.


Yoshi is a spunky and curious adult Tegu. He enjoys long naps in his favorite hide and is an eager eater of protein and fruits, but he can be a little picky about eating his vegetables. Yoshi is looking for an adult only home with a lot of space to explore at his leisure. Yoshi has some small deformities in his toes due to improper shedding in his early years so his forever home will need to be conscious of potential future health risks and be ready for lots of soaks and keeping enclosure humidity at the proper level for his species.


True to his name, Lance is sharp, both in mind and body! This spunky and spiky dude loves to learn and is very food motivated. He would do best in a home without young kids and is ready for fun and entertaining training sessions. We are reasonably sure Lance is a Coastal Bearded dragon (separate species from inland bearded dragons). Lance has been in our care for quite a while receiving medical care for Septic Arthritis but is now healthy and ready to find his forever home!
