he's pretty small...about 2.5-3 inches in cluding tail. (never actually measured, that's just an eyeball guess.) his name is Flamey. he lives in a medium-sized aquarium that is half dry land and half pond. its got some very nice river stones on the bottom. his tummy is all red speckled. its adorable, but that never shows up in pics. (not that i don't try.) i clean his cage about once to twice a week, depending on if he is molting or not. he mostly just sits around in his cage, but take him out and he gets all squirmy and wanting to run around. its great.
