Regarding them being illegal in California: I live in Northern Cali, about 30 mins from Sacramento, and they sell them in Pet stores here. One store has them in tiny (1 gallon) kritter keepers.

Your boy is super cute! I love his coloring.

I love that you want to rescue two babies, but just remember they are canibalistic until they reach about six inches long, so keep them in a divided tank until they reach that size. :)

Yeah, pretty much. He has his moments, but mostly is very lazy. XD

I spoke too soon about them being for sale here in California. The one store where I have seen them for sale didn't know they were illegal! So they have stopped selling them. The supplier they originally got them from has stopped breeding them as well.

I was thinking about getting one too... oh well.
