U. thomasi Mating 2016!

This morning I caught my pair of Uromstyx thomasi mating. This is rather early for them, seeing as the previous two years they were not mating until early-mid April. It has been warm here over the last week, so maybe that has caused them to copulate earlier. It's a crummy cell phone photo, but usually when I catch the lizards mating it's the only camera I have on hand. Either way, this is a good start to the season for the Uromastyx and hopefully in around four or five weeks she will lay eggs.
