Probly is.. but then Carl.. how do YOU feel about me being your underling.. didn't I do good?
You did say.. Wow, they look nice. Good job raising them I would say.

So now I'm passing that along to Kelly.. of course she was easier to teach than I was I'm sure..

So- do all 'cherryheads' (is there a better term we can try to promote? Brazilian? Brazilian Red? Bahian? Morrocoy?)...

1. Have the 'Rudolph Sign' of the big red (or sorta red) honker?

2. Have the darker plastron of Red-foots from south of the Amazon?

3. Are there other consistent signs we can use for the 'non-cherry' Cherryheads?

The dwarf bit still confuses me. Rob Roy at Glade Herps told me about the smaller adult males as well, and I often hear about them getting big as they grow... so were they somehow stunted? Do the wild ones stay smaller, perhaps for dietary reasons?
