Sold for $45, I was able to get the Black Friday deal for $22 Cool

Had to coax the little guy out from the substrate:














It will be upgraded to a planted 10 gallon soon. Unfortunately my phone couldn't pick up the baby blue in its tail, but the pictures aren't that bad either. I'm surprised it got used to me so quickly because I was handling and hand feeding it crickets that same day despite it giving the pet store owner a good fight Smile

4/12/2011 pic of my fire skink whom I've named "Fire Fist Ace" (One Piece):



I'll try to get more pics of him, he's a very cool pet and a voracious feeder.

Fed my fire skink and he's honestly one of the most vicious hunters I've ever seen. He will charge, snatch, and thrash his prey around. Too bad I didn't have my video camera handy, but these pics through the kritter keeper will have to do Smile

What is happening in these pics is he's underground and after I drop in the roach, he will sense the vibrations. Then he'll slither underground (pretty cool to see the substrate move like that) to find the prey item and lunge out to grab it. If he's successful, he will smash the life out of it from side to side. He also has a pretty nasty bite! Talk about biting the hand that feeds you lol
