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

Petunia, along with their 3 other axolotl siblings were born from an accidental axolotl (say that 3 times fast) clutch earlier this year and are growing up quickly and in need of new homes. These adorable flowers are a delight to watch swim around and would love homes where they can have plenty of space to swim and explore. They’re all eating well and will follow you around their enclosures begging for more food like your childhood family dog on Thanksgiving. Axolotls do require lower temperature waters than other species so if you like to keep your home AC on the cool side, this might be the perfect aquatic critter for you!

Sparrow is a sweet and quiet soul. He prefers peace and quiet and mostly likes to keep to himself. With his timid demeanor, he would do well in an adult only home or a quiet home that can give him the patience and a calm environment to help him feel more comfortable. He loves his humid hides and burrows most and would adore a home where he is given plenty of places and space to hide. Sparrow does well for handling but would prefer to explore on his own instead of on or around people.


If you enjoyed Where’s Waldo and I Spy games as a young kid, Moyo might just be a perfect fit! Showing his true colors in more ways than one, he is quite upset by close contact with people and doesn’t appreciate his picture being taken often (see above) but he is great at being true to his chameleon nature and is very good at hiding in foliage. Moyo would love a home where he can be admired from afar and loves to play “where on earth is that chameleon!?”. Moyo loves crickets and spends his time basking in the sun and napping in his favorite branch of leaves.


Daisy, along with their 3 other axolotl siblings were born from an accidental axolotl (say that 3 times fast) clutch earlier this year and are growing up quickly and in need of new homes.

Spira is as sweet as they come! She does very well for handling and was previously a classroom education animal. She loves to snuggle up and hang out (literally hang out of sweatshirts). Spira gets her name from her beautiful spiral swirl along her body (can you spot it in her picture?). She would love a home with lots of enclosure enrichment and things to climb on.
