    I've been looking for a new male ..a bold patterned tiger or brindle morph ..and the other day, I came across this little fella.....

    [​IMG]
    He's a little dehydrated, so moist towels in his travel cup...

    [​IMG]
    He loupes boy ..about 7 grams now

    [​IMG]
    His stripes kind of stop in a smiley shape on his sides ..not so much on this side..

    [​IMG]
    More on this side, but his knee is in the way a little..


    I named him Cinco Dinero ..cuz he came with a HUGE discount due to his tail issue. I'm still not sure he won't have to lose his tail, but I'm already doing rehab.. so hopefully he can keep it. (This species does not regenerate.)


    Thanks for lookin' [​IMG]

    Cool... my 13 yr. old daughter wants a lizard for a pet. We just can't add any more mouths to feed right now though.
    Hope his tail heals.

    Wow, Aminah! He's so gorgeous. It amazes me how diverse the coloring can be on Cresties! Awesome purchase.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    His tail doesn't look as bad as I originally thought, after a few saunas and treatments ..but he still could lose it. The pad seems to be non-responsive ...although he still sticks pretty well and shows some prehensile ability in the tail, overall. We'll see.. [​IMG]

    He needs to gain a bit of weight, too [​IMG]
