Here are a few pics of Chester, he's an Ambilobe and almost 3mos old. He has a red mark by his leg, cuz I had the breeder hold on to him for me and he marked him with a marker to identify him from the other chams. Isn't he cool?
The breeder actually owned his own pet store, but was doing some major re-modelling and had limited space at the moment. He said not to worry abou the mark, and it would come off soon. It's already starting to fade.
Well, I was just at our bi-monthly reptile expo. So I brought the issue of the marker up with a vendor.
A breeder told me that there are serveral safe markers to use. They are Not like conventional paper markers but leave a latex-like-sheet or something that painlessly dries and flakes of in a few days. I see it used a lot with sexing baby dragons because they sell so fast at expositions that the vendors dont have time to sex them all during the show, so they put a red or blue dot on the tail for male and female.
