I got him off of flchams. It didn't say translucent. It did say he would be 2 months old though but I really feel like he's only 1 month.. which sucks for a first timer like me. This is the dad I got the baby fromi think his colors will be pretty cool when he grows up then! translucent is usually easier to tell. what did the breeder/place say about him, did they say anything about him being translucent, or making you pay more for that possible reasoning?
