Dhub Dhub - Yellow Uromastyx

As a Uromastyx, Dhub Dhub embodies the phrase "Business in the front, party in the back". As an herbivore, his species has a lot of predators, and he uses that spiky tail to scare them away if he feels threatened.

Dhub Dhub - Yellow Uromastyx

Dhub Dhub the yellow uromastyx has been with us since May of 2021. While the Uromastyx family comes from a variety of places, the bulk of their population are in the deserts of Northern Africa. Their unique body shape allows them to make a quick escape from predators, leaving only their spiky tails out. This deters many animals from attempting to make a meal out of Uromastyx.

Dhub Dhub serves as a great animal ambassador to show that even an herbivorous animal can be full of defense mechanisms to keep them safe. Additionally, these lizards move their hips in a serpentine fashion to intimidate predators, but we at Spock’s Sanctuary can’t help but laugh at their unique dance moves.

If you’re looking to sponsor a unique animal that dances like Shakira, Dhub Dhub may be the ambassador for you! Otherwise, Dhub Dhub also serves a great representation of vegetarian power, and the importance of eating your greens!
