I actually saved this picture many years ago. It's in my animals folder. By now the actual dragon may have died of old age.
I'm really new to dragon care, so before I buy an expensive color morph, I want to make sure my own husbandry is sufficient, i.e. I want to wait until Grover is at least six months old and in his adult enclosure before taking on another baby.
What's the best way to describe this color morph (there are so many!!!)? Hypo orange? Hypo sunburst???
Also, is it acceptable for you to recommend me a breeder? Dachiu has a really nice guarantee on their live dragons, but I wrote them an email and they haven't responded. They are busy and in the process of moving, so perhaps I should try again. I was hoping for a "I'm going to reply" reply. I try to do that with my customers, but I don't have the same amount of traffic, so I understand my email getting lost. Do they have a waiting line? If so, I'd like to get in it for a nice orange dragon. I'm not sure which sex just yet. Whichever sex, my dream beardie has always looked like the one above.
John's Orange Herps has some nice breeders, but when I look at the babies they don't look as visually stunning as Dachiu's babies. I know it takes time to moult into adult coloration, but I don't know what I'm looking at. Yet.
Advice, por favor?
