    Yes it is. There are a few small specks of darker pigment here and there but not many. I'll get some more photos later today and put them up.

    Is that usual behaviour for them?

    Yes. I assume they use it while climbing to move between branches. Much easier than climbing back down.

    That would be awesome!

    Also, do you plan on breeding? Because I'd definitely be interested in pattern less Pinkies.

    If I can find more patternless I definitely will. If not I may have to try my luck with a normal paired to it and see what comes out. I'll keep you updated.

    That's so neat to see, I didn't know that their tails were that prehensile!

    Here are a couple more pictures for you @Stompsy
    I tracked down the breeder of mine, I have a juvenile and an adult coming. Hopefully I get a pair out of the three and can get some nice hatchies. I'll keep you updated. 20171120_103339-768x1024.jpg 20171120_103348-768x1024.jpg 20171120_103409-768x1024.jpg

    Somehow they don't look as angry as the patterned variety.
