it was almost a carbon copy of the the one in your avitar....adult on the small size....i said to him thats a calaco is it not...he said .....no its a red juwel.....so i asked whats a red juwel he said plec....phhhh some people,

he then told me....theres a female in there to, he tryed to show me, but it had already been sold...i said was it the same markings he said no its just a female common, i thought i would see if they go at it.....

so i asked him if he was struggling to get common bn;s because thats about all you would get from that breed, lmfao.....

anyway thought as much......lfs making up its own breed to get more money....nice....

39.99 for a calaco....i dont think so !
