I have the e-mail addresses of a few other people who keep or kept sailfin lizards. If there is a question I cannot answer, I would be happy to ask them for you. Unfortunately, many of these people change their e-mails so I can no longer contact them. If you are a sailfin breeder or knowledged owner and would like your e-mail included on my page, please let me know.
I have the following books on lizards and sailfin lizards. Finding books on sailfin lizards is difficult. Only the first two books have sailfins in the title but the others mention them.
|Book Information||Link to Purchase|

|Lizards in the Terrarium by Harold Jes, Barrons
Educational Series, Inc., 1987. There is a sailfin on the cover.
I also have the Repta-Care Sheet #05 on Sailfin Dragons. It does not list a producer. It calls the Phillipines sailfin lizard by Hydrosaurus pustulosus instead of the correct Hydrosaurus pustulatus.
Also, check out the May 1998 issue of Reptiles magazine for an article on sailfin lizards including nice color photos.
Rec.pets.herps - the old newsgroup (warning; it is full of SPAM now)
**Sailfin Lizard Yahoo Group - this is a group run by Scott who breeds sailfins. Be sure to check out the photo gallery. His photos of Weber's (H. weberi) and Philippine's (H. pustulatus) sailfins are incredible, and there are some H. amboinensis photos as well. I saw a photo for the first time (back in 2000?) of a male H. pustulatus to compare to my female. He is amazing!
