    Last year the Neunkircher Zoo recieved a pair of Ryuku green long-tailed lizards which were bred by a privat breeder. The animals are doing very well and in December 2014 2 eggs were discovered in the enclosure. In the incubater it took 41 and 42 days at a temperature of 28 deg. Celcius to hatch. They measured 2,5 centimeter and weighted half a gramm and are the first German Zoo-breeding of the species.
