Yep when they first got him in he was $2500. Advertised as a great investment animal for breeding stock. I'm not surprised this lizard is still around, its way too much for an animal that isn't seen as being worth much. An all black red or blacka nd white i think would sell faster and for much more.
Ya when i look at the pictures now this lizard is lightening up a bit around the sides. The first pictures he posted it did not have have hint of yellow. Now around the front legs its harding to show some yellowing. Still a cool find but i question the price.
I've kept an eye on it and the price has gone done. The last time I talk to Josh,.. he said he could let it go for around 1000 :dodgy:,.. not gonna happen. But I can continue to wait and watch the price drop .
They haven't posted any new pics,.. so far they just have 2 sets that they rotate out. One where it's in a cage and those with the white background.
At those prices I'm not surprised at all. Colombians are not one of the higher valued tegus and with a lot of people they have a bad rep for being hard to work with. Even though there may not be many in captivity,.. that's wa..y too much money to be asking for it.
Even if it proves to be just a different color, pattern that can be passed on to offspring or a new subspecies. It would still fall under the Colombian category with Goldens.
