These are so underrated in the pet trade they're awesome. This one is a screamer.

Not recalling ever seeing one in person, I get the impression photos just don't do them justice. I've HEARD they're highly iridescent.

Chris,

They're not the most attractive juveniles and therefore I can see how these would be a hard sell at shows. I've never been in their territory to find a wild one either. I have kept them, and recently took some shots of a really nice adult in a friend's collection.
