    i have a columbian up for sale. I got him thinking he was an argentine but when i actually received him, he was a columbian. I love him to death, I just really really wanted an argentine. He is very tame for being a columbian and i know they have bad reps, but he is hand tame, never bites or anything. A little figity when being picked up and sometimes "puffs" at me when i put my hand in the cage, but he licks me then he stops. He eats ground turkey eggs tilapia etc. I have a 125 gallon tank for him. He is 3 feet long, not sure of age. Also have heat and uvb fixture, its an all in one fixture thing but the bulbs are separate. Everything you need to care for him you can have. im asking 250, but i cant ship anything.

    I am in Cincinnati ohio. oh and another thing, i call him a "he" but i think he might be female, idk how to tell really.

    Yep, I have a 3ft super tame Colombian and I wouldn't let him go for $50. When you have a good one, they are really something.

    this is true!!! When i got him i was dissapointed he was a columbian, But as time went by i realized how tame he acctually is. I would still love to have an argentine though!!! haha. I wanted something bigger and bulkier and also tame. My columbian is tame, but i have always wanted the BIGGER argentine:)

    I had thought about a colombian before getting my other 2 argentines. I know not all of them tame down but the ones that do seem wonderful! It would make it worth it :p
