    Default [Possible] New Chewie

    Hi!
    Lately I have been so interested in "higher tier" geckos like chahouas or leachies after taking care of cresties, gargs and other reptiles for a while. I've got an amazing deal pending on a chahoua ($200) from a reputable breeder. I have some pictures and I want to know if he looks good and healthy (of course) before I get him. He's a juvenile male but I don't know which locale!
    Thank you in advance,
    Maya

    Looks healthy to me! No underbite or tail kinks (growing chewies are very sensitive to calcium issues), and a cute little chewie for sure!

    It looks like a Pine Isle to me, but sometimes the mainlands do not have the typical huge eyes and short snout, and there are of course mixed locales as well. The breeder should know, though. Mixed chahouas may not be as valuable as breeders, but $200 for a healthy chewie is a steal, especially if you are primarily looking for a pet.

    And I think naming him "He who must not be named" is a fun idea. Will probably be "you know who" pretty soon ;-)

    From what I know about chewies (which slim to nothing), he looks healthy. I would definitely get him. $200 is, from what I know about chewies, pretty cheap. He's adorable! Voldemort is cute .

    Yeah! Plus it's in CAD which means it's like $0 US :-D Haha
    But yes I'm almost 99.9% sure I'm getting the little guy.
    Thank you!
