Sailfin Dragon Showcase

Last Updated: 12/21/10

This web site is to show photos of other sailfin lizards/dragons in addition to Einstein. Photos of my female Philippines sailfin lizard Einstein, can be seen on her web site. A sailfin breeder (Scott) e-mailed me to say that while Einy is an H. pustulatus (Philippines sailfin lizard), all of the sailfins below are H. amboinensis. The one exception is the last sailfin which is a female H. pustulatus and possibly the pair shown at the bottom (new entries so Scott has not looked at them).

If you would like to add your sailfin's photos and information here, contact me.

The photos are posted from oldest to newest at the bottom.

This is a photo of a sailfin named Gojira that belongs to Jason. It is hard to tell for sure which species it is but a breeder e-mailed me that Gojira is an H. amboinensis. Jason thinks Gojira is female. Gojira is about two feet long and lives in a 55 gallon tank. Gojira may be on-line here.

These are two more pictures of Gojira.


Here are Samson and Delila. A sailfin breeder says they are H. amboinensis. Delila, pictured on top, is about 26 inches long. She has an injured snout (sailfins commonly bash their faces into walls). Samson, pictured on the bottom, is about 1.5 years old (10/00) and 16 inches long. Their cage is 4 ft long, 2 ft deep, and 3 ft high (the same as Einy's cage but a foot higher). They use a cat litter pan in which to swim. Their caretakers live in Florida so heat and humidity are no problem! You can contact them at rnikkel@bellsouth.net

Here Samson and Delila are together. Aren't they precious?!


Jorge

Here are Jorge and Millie who live with Deborah in Scotland. Both were born about March, 2000. Millie is smaller and believed to be female and Jorge male. Jorge, as of 2/10/01, is about 6 inches without tail and 12 inches with tail while Millie is about 5 inches without tail and 9 inches with tail. They were born and raised together and love to sleep on top of each other. Both appeared to be Philippine's sailfin lizards like Einstein but a breeder says that they too are H. amboinensis. Aren't they cute!

Here are two new photos of Jorge in early 2002. He's a beauty! Here, he obviously is not a Philippine's sailfin as he looks nothing like Einstein in the right photo (color is wrong). Unfortunately, Millie died in 2001 perhaps after knocking herself out and falling in the water. You can see more photos and information on Jorge at Deborah's web site at www.sailfindragon.co.uk.


Above are two photos of Rex, owned by Jared. The same breeder says they are H. amboinensis.


Above are three photos of Lawrence's four Philippine's sailfin lizards. He lives in the Philippines. Iggy is the oldest and 1.5 feet long. He wears the collar. Lizzy is 1.2 feet long. Zoelith is a foot long. Zoefinnia is 9 inches long (just a baby!). The first photo is of Iggy and Lizzy. The second photo is of Zoelith and Zoefinnia. The third photo is of Zoelith. We believe these are actual Philippine's sailfins. You can visit Lawrence's web site.


Above are three photos of Mooshu. Dawne takes care of this sailfin. We were not sure which species he/she is but the sailfin breeder says Mooshu is a H. amboinensis too (like most!).


This is a photo of an adult male H. amboinensis (according to the aforementioned breeder). The person who sent the photo in 9/03 said he was a male H. weberi. Amazing, isn't he! Look at his sail!


This is a photo of another sailfin named Ashley. Ian lets Ashley run loose in a room of the house with a water dragon. The photo was sent on 6/22/04. I am not going to guess his/her species because I am always wrong!

On 9/11/04, Ian sent me two photos of his sailfin lizard, Ashley, in a 4 foot long tank.

On 1/17/05, Joe (an American living in the Philippines) sent me the above photos of a female H. pustulatus that he found at a food market in a rural area in the Negros Islands in the Western Visayas part of the Philippines. He rescued her from being eaten! She is about three feet long and very green compared to other sailfins I have seen. Click on the above three photos to see larger versions.


On 5/25/05, Daphne and Jan Paul in the Netherlands sent me some photos of their nice indoor tropical rainforest that they built for their 4 female and 1 male sailfin. The sailfins are about three years old and three feet long. The rainforest is 70 square meters (753.5 square feet) with UV sun roofs and a 15,000 liter (3962.6 US gallons) koi pond. Wow! They thought they were Philippines sailfins but they looked more like H. amboinensis to me and expert Scott verified this as well as the other lizards and sexes that I list below. In order to save load time on this page, please click on the photos below. They are really nice sailfins!

On 1/6/07, Erik said (lots of grammar altered), "Hey, I was just admiring Jean Paul's rainforest photos; there are also numerous other species in there, such as the Chinese water dragon, Physignathus cocincinus and plumed or emerald basilisk, Basiliscus plumifrons. Just thought that since I noticed, I would point it out."

Jan Paul later sent 17 more photos below (after the next two entries).


Here is a link to photos of Kay's sailfin named Marlin. Marlin is a female Philippine's sailfin lizard just like Einstein! Kay got her 8 years ago (circa 1998) when the "bearded dragon" was said to be about 5-years-old. So Marlin and Einstein were similar in age as well as species and sex. I can still tell them apart easily! No two sailfins are alike.

Frank sent me seven photos of his pair of Philippine's sailfin lizards on 7/10/06. He lives in the Netherlands and got them in Germany from a breeder. They are about 8-months-old.

Jan Paul (the same one mentioned above) lives in Holland and has a colony of H. amboinensis. They breed in a big tropical setup (see above for details). The other lizards in with the sailfins are Physignatus lesueurii which are Australian water dragons (I would love some of those!). He sent 17 photos on 12/7/06 so I made them text links since I could not decide which ones to use!

Carlos in the Philippines sent these photos of a pair of young (5 to 6 months old) Philippine sailfin lizards. They were very sick; when he got them, they were anorexic. He said they were a pair, and the female soon died.

I am adding this photo on 9/1/07 from a long time ago, maybe even before 2000. I never linked it in but still had the photo. I do not have the information as to who sent it or what it is. I think it is a H. Amboinensis.
Sailfin


On 5/3/08, Karen in the UK sent these photos of her sailfin lizards. She has three H. amboinensis, 1 young male (2 years old) and 2 females (3 and 4 years old) and also a Weber's sailfin (she says male).

On 5/3/09, Anthony sent these photos of a sailfin that he called a "Moluccan." The Weber's sailfin is from the Moluccan Islands. They do not know the species, and I am not 100% myself. It is a young sailfin, maybe a year old I am guessing. The young ones look a lot alike.

Jessica sent this photo of Monster on 5/2/10. Monster is a male Weber's sailfin lizard, 10 months old. He is 135 grams and 7 inches in length.

Anthony sent a ton more photos of sailfins. This first set from 10/28/10 is of possibly a male intergrade.
Tony said, "I just checked with my buddy Scott, this is what he said."
"Those are the classic intergrade sailfin, species unknown, but Halmahera locality, as you head East of Halmahera this type exists as well, probably into the Irian Jaya localities of sailfins. Not as common as your typical Webers. But you can see why I named them intergrades, as they share characteristics of Webers and amboinensis giving them a slight philippine coloration, with oranges and blues and greens, mostly being pastels. A little heavier built than Webers but not as monstrous as the Indo Giants or Philippine pustulatus."
These are all head shots except for the ones noted as body or tail photos.

This second set sent on 10/30/10 may be a female. I am not sure of the species. Most shots are body shots and some head shots and full shots.
