              Baby chewies are so addictive! I was totally obsessed with little Urmel :-).
              Here are pictures from when I first got him (Jan 28/29). He was only 6.5 g then!


              This one was maybe a month later. I love the typical chahoua pose!

              Somewhere in the Rhac photo forum I also posted a cute picture of 7.5 g Urmel sitting on a 7.5 g blueberry :-)

                Thank you for sharing! Urmel seems to have blossomed with some more red coming out, and I just love how that white speckling seems to outline pattern in the collar area Plus tail curl never gets old, lol.

                My little one is 5.2 g and the only pic I took was through the deli lid, I will need to take many more once he/she is settled. Can't wait until he/she is old enough to sex, I never like choosing "official" names without knowing gender.

                  Yes, naming can be a challenge not knowing the gender. But Urmel is named after a book character (Urmel aus dem Eis = Urmel from the ice) who hatches from an egg frozen in a stranded iceberg, and since it is still a baby, its gender is not known. His name could roughly be translated as 'little prehistoric creature'. I figured that would work for both a boy and a girl, and I still think it is a perfect name for a chahoua

                    He is starting to color up! Urmel shed a few days ago, and now some beautiful green is popping up here and there. So excited! .

                    Looking more and more like his namesake

                      Wow, he is gorgeous! Love that stripe down his back, I wonder if he will get redder in the base. Do you know what his parents looked like? Chewies can change so much from hatchling to adult, please keep sharing more photos as he develops more

                        He has a lot of orange lining his belly and on the underside of his tail. I think the brown on his back will gradually turn green. I do not have pictures of his parents, I picked him based on baby pics alone and let him surprise me. Urmel is an F2 Pine Island chewie produced by Steve Cemelli / Leapin' Leachies. Steve was too busy to send me pics of Urmel's parents when I bought him, but maybe I can ask him to send me some pics when he gets around to it (?). Anyway, I am super happy with Urmel, he is developing very well and has the sweetest gecko personality.
