View Full Version : Chahoua Locals??

02-07-2007, 05:21 PM
I should be getting a Chahoua really soon, I was just wondering how you tell the difference between the different locals though. I can't find anything to help me out here. The guy I'm getting it from says it's a pine island, but I want to be sure. Any info would be great.

There are Pine Islands and Mainlands. My Pine Islands are more greenish and larger than my mainlands which are smaller (due to being inbred in captivity for so long) my mainlands are also more red.

There are some scalation differences but I'm not going to get into that.

Hope this helps

Ok, here's a couple pics of the guy, I just got him today... What do you think on local? The guy says Isle of Pines, he weighs 45 grams as of now...

Nobody can tell what he is? I measured him and he's about 5 inches svl as well.

I would say Pine Island

Does he have a regenerated tail? Never seen a Chahoua with a regrown tail.

It's not fully regenerated. It's like an inch long stub that he regenerated.
