It was mainlands that first got me into chahoua, and while I don't keep them anymore, I do sometimes look back on old pics and think about how they get a bad rep for not being as beautiful or interesting as PIs. Here are some of mine from over the years - who else has pics to share?

This is my first chahoua. It was from a shop, sold to me as male, (they were disappointed it wasn't female) I couldn't see any pores or bulges, but being my first chahoua I wanted to be sure so had it checked out by someone experienced....I paid £100 or 126USD, white collar and turned out to be female :). Her hobbies are eating, sleeping, laying eggs (duds) and aggressively protecting her vivarium when she lays eggs. She looks very mainland compared to my others which I think are mixed locales.

I wish the pet shops over here sold Chahoua! I'd have gotten into them a lot sooner! She's a cutie :)

Yay! I have MLs here. I have found them just as beautiful in color and pattern as PI. It is kind of difficult to find other breeders who work with ML. Could we pin a post with people who actively work with MLs?!

Some pics of my crew.

They are all gorgeous, but the pattern on that last one is particularly awesome!

RE Pinning a post of GT breeders/keepers, sure! Start a thread and I'll pin it! :)
