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

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.

Loki is a curious and hungry dude. He spends his days snuggled up in his favorite hides, and his evenings exploring. He will always peek his head out of his hide to say hello and his favorite pastime is food. Loki would love an adult only home where he can get some handling experience and the chance to explore.

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.


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.


Tiny Tajín has had an eventful life so far for a juvenile! This non-native species was found by a good Samaritan working at a grocery store, where Tajín was found in the produce section. We think this little lady accidentally stowed away on some produce from southern California! While we wish she could go back to the wild, since we are not able to know exactly where she came from, she cannot be returned to the wild. She would love a home ready to give her lots of bugs, privacy, and plants to perch on.
