I finally got a chance to take photos of these creatures in breeding time.
Here they are:

Your T. v. ophryticus group looks amazing to say the least Juraj, how is the breeding going?

Hey Juraj,

Nice animals! I noticed the female has a bit of a scrape on the side of her head and the male may have the same on his foreleg. Is that the result of mating encounters? I have a male with a similar mark behind his left shoulder which I'm watching cautiously...

Coen: it`s going well there are already some eggs.
Brian: that`s not a scrap though it looks like that but mating encounters are really tempestuous. See male`s crest.
Justin: I`ve got them only a few days.
