So i have OFFICIALLY decided that I am going to get an Argentine B&W tegu.
Today I'm going to meet with a few people who said they could get one in for me... One of which is a great herper in the area who runs an amazing business and has always been willing to help me out, and who keeps some really stunning, healthy animals. The other is this lady who i got my HTCT female (andromeda) leopard gecko from, and she has a lot of quality herps too. Soooo at this point, i'm looking based on health firstly, temperment, and colouration lastly.
I'm hoping to find a female, but since i'm getting a baby, it could be a long shot.
Anyway. If any of you guys have any helpful insider tips on their care, aside from the general care, that'd be great. I'm not looking to purchase just yet... want to continue my research and begin procuring the supplies i will need. Fortunately, i have a friend who is giving away most of his reptile stuff (he had to downsize his collection completely, except for a mildly retarded leopard gecko... poor lil gecko is all kinds of messed up, it seriously has CROSSED EYES. but he is way cute and we love him dearly) and i also have a load of surplus stuff, from UTH's to heat lamps, and substrate... should be fun getting it all together.
Anyway, just wanted to share my excitement with you guys. I'll take some pics of the potentials, so you all can give your opinions, and of course, oogle at cute baby lizards!
On my reptile front at home, Nymphadora, my high yellow leopard gecko, is gearing up to lay her third pair of eggs. very cool.
And Archie the beardie hung out with me while I played Super nintentdo yesterday. He does this adorable thing where he crawls next to my thigh, and tries to smush his face between my leg and the couch 0_0 haha and then the wiggles his big ole dragony butt so that he's THISCLOSE to me, wedged between me and couch.
Its the cutest thing ever.
