    Brand New Girl.

    Just picked up my second female in my collection a nice black pastel. Had to come on and share her. Would love to hear what everyone thinks of her. I will try to get some better pics once she settles in. Thanks.

    Re: Brand New Girl.

    I also picked one up a week ago. I was told she was a Black Pastel and she does look like it. The one feature that confuses me though is that instead of a solid white belly; she has speckled black scales all throughout her belly. It's the first time I've seen it. I've read that Black Pastels are very similar to Cinnamons. Can someone tell me the differences and/or post some pics to compare. Ty

    Thanks everyone for looking. I do have a question. She does look like a black pastel correct? And a pretty nice one to right? I have been told from some other people that she is a normal or that she is a poor quality Black Pastel. I just want to know what others think. I have read the descriptions on black pastels and she matches all of it. Thanks. Here is a pic I took of her today.

    It's a matter of preference. Some people like the busier pattern, I like a lot of oblong connected alien heads and a more reduced dorsal pattern/blackback (more of a cinnamon feature but I see it occur in black pastels as well)

    Pretty girl nonetheless!
