no offense Ken they look old...what I mean is how the color almost looks dulled out ya know. neat looking guys you got there though, I take you have never worked with this color before?

SWEET..is that the new female?

Thats the new female Jeff! ;-)

And no offense dragonflames81, they range in colors...you will notice that they go from white at night to orange in the day, I just got the girl, she might be a little stressed from being in a box for 10 hours, and the male is about to shed (bottom pic)...I don't know how many you have seen, but they usually look like this color day to day when they are sleeping, and as you can tell, I woke her up and threw him in for a quick pic so show everyone.

Thanks Wes!

I've seen a few of these guys but I don't think I've seen to many pics of them not colored up.

Dont they also tend to kick sand up on themselves?

Those are nice Ken. You gotta hook a sister up with a baby from them, if you let any go that is!

Here you go dragonflames. Some wheeleri are more pink than others. Here is a shot of two little gals that are about a month old. Ken is also right. There is tremendous color change from daytime to nightime. Enjoy.

Kelli, of course girl! Come on!

And herperboy, they do...but I blow the sand off of them, for a better picture...with any of the sandes you buy of 10lbs that are at your local petstores, they seem to have a kind of dust that turns them redish colors or the colors of the sand that you buy...

I use the sand you buy at your local home depot, thats like $3 a bag...

I think in America the morphs are going to be strong. I can't wait to see what happens when you breed stripe to stripe or in your case patternless x stripe. Its going to be pretty exciting for the next couple of years with the wheeleri.
