    Default My New Uroplatus… Fimbriatus


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    She looks really good, I was prepared for the worst because you never know how they'll look when they get to you. "She"(thats what i was told) is 7 inches long.

    This is just her quarantine tank. She'll be going into a fully planted spacious 36"x18"x36" eventually. Sounds silly but i wanted to make sure she is a fimbriatus cuz my intention is to pair her with my male when she's older. I've read all the forums but i've never seen a juvie and have never had the opportunity to compare uros to know the differences with confidence.

    Let me know if more pictures are needed.

    Thanks

    she's beautiful.

    where did you get her? if she's CBB from a good breeder, no worries about species.

    True, its just her eyes that caught me off guard. They're very light in comparison to my male and since giganteus are known as "white-eyed" uroplatus I thought I would ask others opinions However the more digging I do the more I realise some fimbs just have light eyes with less red in them...

    Fimbriatus and giganteus are actually still a weird complex, and sometimes the eyes are not a good character to go off of. But yes, if the breeder knows what she is, then no worries.
