    When we hold him, after he calms down, he mostly just sits there. We don't hold him very often, not because he's mean or anything (he's pretty laid back) but because he just has this look. Ya know, like "if you must but I'd really rather you didn't".

    Thanks so much for all your help! I tend to worry so having someone more knowledgeable chime in really helps!

    He has the body type, in my opinion, of many super hypo tangerines, especially the ones from the Hines line (with tnose big triangular heads). Most of my males go over 100 grams in the summer, so I wouldn't worry about him. If you want him to get more exercise you could try putting in a hammock or a 2nd level (PVC pipe legs, 2 12" tiles sandwiching a mini UTH).

    I finally got around to weighing him again. Still at 76 grams according to my scale. I'll try to get some better pics soon. Ones where he's actually standing and not flopped on his belly. lol

    We definitely wouldn't be opposed to seeing more pics.

    Nothing wrong with that weight IMO...like Aliza said, I think there's some genetics in play there so even if he does gain more, it's not necessarily a bad thing. He doesn't look obese, just hefty...but that's how I think boys should look. My male is 76g as well, but he doesn't look "manly" like yours does...I tell him every day that he has to eat more so he can be big and strong and attract the ladies.

    Aww! What a cutie! Bet he and my Digit would make some pretty babies :P

    Also, I think his weight is just fine!
