      Thanks! I'm very excited. I was supposed to pick it up last weekend, but car trouble got in the way. Hoping odds are better this coming weekend.

          It is! Been on the fence since early spring. I was a little tipsy when I saw him post this guy for $300 and jumped at it. Don't drink and browse classifieds...

                More pics, just picked him/her up today! It weighs 14g and I can't tell if I see pores or not. When does the bulge usually drop on these guys?

                  Had a chewie that I saw "pores" on at around 15g. That gecko didn't drop a bulge, didn't drop one, didn't drop one. Weight continued to climb, and I assumed she was just packing some pseudo pores. Now, at nearly 40g HE has gotten his package.

                  It can be anywhere from 15g-40g sadly LOL. Cute kid! Take lots of pic as she grows, progressions are great.

                    That's depressing! I'd lose it at 40g. I had a couple sarasinorum I felt comfortable calling female until the bulge came at 20g. Assumed chahoua would be similar with the weight being close. Looks like I'll be waiting a bit longer...

                    I definitely plan on some photo progressions for this little one. I think it's wild they go from completely brown to some mix of orange and green and you have no idea where either color will show up until it does.

                      So far I seem to be having Meg's experience as well... I have two males that were showing distinct pores at 10 grams. I could see them with the naked eye and everything... they are 34 and 38 grams right now and STILL no bulge. So...I'll let you know when my guys drop theirs haha.

                        Jeez, I didn't really these guys were such late bloomers. I'm optimistic because louping the little guy I can't see anything I'd identify as pores. Maybe a couple pseudo pores, but at 14g I'm not seeing much of anything at all. Guess we'll see in about 18 months or so...

                          It won't take 18 months to hit 40g...you should know much sooner than that!

                            Up north it tends to take my rhacs a little longer to grow in the winter. This one only hatched out in December 2011 so I actually expected it to be much smaller.

                              Slower growth is totally fine. Do bugs 1-2x a week and you'll be fine. It can be really stressful to have a weight goal with a living animal. Some of my chahoua grew like weeds, some grew in spurts. No one says "wow that crested should be X grams since its X months old" so I don't know why we subject chewies to those standards

                              Feed her, handle her, enjoy her. You'll do fine! And remember, LOTS of pics! They seem to change over night. One day they are little brown babies, the next, green and red and pink adults!

                              Oddly enough I picked mostly male names for my unsexed kids, and they turned out to both be girls! Its why I have a lady named after a Fire Nation Prince (Avatar the last Airbender) and a water tribe warrior Boys names are cuter on girls anyway, I think!
