After losing my first boy Ramesses yesterday following a long period of illness, I stopped by the pet store where I got him and this adorable little CT boy kept trying to get my attention. They had a new shipment of CT in, but not unpacked and he convinced me to ask them to put him on hold until I could see the others today. He is apparently a copper red, but he looks more silver than anything to me. He was just as persistent today and, while the new ones put on a good showing, I decided that he was the one. He just got into his temporary home until I can get the main divided 5.5 gallon cleaned up and is happily exploring everywhere.
He's rather tiny though, not much more than an inch long, and he is a bit underweight. I have some smaller good quality pellets in addition to the regular ones so I think he'll like them. I've been naming after Egyptian pharoahs so far with Ramesses and Psusennes, but I'm open to suggestions for names. Here are the first pictures of him.
