Juvenile 100% het for hypo carbonaria (probable male)

1 juvenile 100% het for hypo carbonaria (probable male)
~5.5" scl
Has aberrant scutes.
Needs 2-3 inches more linear growth to effectively breed if male (which it probably is). This is a groundling (naturalistically ground-hatched as a hatchling) and therefore a probable male given the area of its hatching and the species.
2200 shipped for the probable male alone

A quasi-local price would be somewhat less since I would not need to ship.

Feeding on varied soft fruits, wild fungi, Mazuri, natural graze, and occasional invertebrate prey in a naturalistic outdoor pen. This animal spends all year outdoors. Hets such as this animal can provide a relatively affordable option relative to hypos for a given size.

This animal has split/fused/aberrant scutes which can be seen in the photographs provided. Behavior is bold, outgoing, and personable. It explores a lot and feeds avidly. I have 7-8"+ male hets and 10-13"+ female hets, so this groundling is an extra. I do not mind having extras, but it does not meaningfully affect my project if it stays or if it goes off to become part of someone else's project. If it is a male as expected, then it is useful for a number of hypo keepers out there who will lack males and be unable to find any aside from the very infrequently produced or sold ones out there.

The first post will show the animal as it is (unflattering and a little grimy). The second post will show some groundling photos of the probable male as a hatchling.

Any buyer is expected to have done his/her research prior to making contact, as it shows intellectual investment in the well-being of the animal(s).


Shipping and LAG:

I ship via Reptile Express (which utilizes Fed-Ex). If there is adverse weather involved, we will wait for a safer shipping window as warranted. Contact me at nickolasanastasiou at yahoo dot com if you are interested in purchasing. I offer a live arrival guarantee if you are present to receive. If there is a DOA situation, I expect multiple hi-res photos adequately displaying the condition within an hour of receipt (and I may require the corpse/corpses to be sent back to me; you will be compensated for this if it happens). If there is a discrepancy in description, I expect to be made aware of it within the day it is received (in which case, I will issue you a full refund upon safe return of the animal/animals to me). Animals under 4" scl are not sold as pets. Contiguous 48 only (I actually can ship to HI or AK, but there may be additional costs involved that the buyer would have to cover).

Shipping is running me approximately $65 to $75 most of the time now. Sometimes I save two bucks and sometimes I lose ten over the included number, so $65 to $75 is what I settle at for smaller animals. I suppose I could meet up with someone closer and chop the shipping off, but it would have to be a convenient location for me and I am ONLY chopping the shipping off for a meet-up. The distance you traverse has zero bearing on this cost reduction. Larger animals cost a heap more to ship, so that incorporated cost is steeper.


Email me at nickolasanastasiou at yahoo dot com if you are interested in purchasing. I am usually busy between work, perhaps school, care for my menagerie, more work, family stuff, and yet more work, so email works best for me. Deal discussions are to be conducted through email. Since I use Fauna private messages for site-related communications, I am unlikely to respond to PMs about animals in my ads. It also implies the person either did not read or did not care about what was written.


All non-local sale prices have shipping cost, packaging, and any miscellaneous fees/costs built in for buyer convenience except where otherwise indicated (usually for much larger individuals). What you see is what you get. Payment plans are no longer accepted. If only a portion of the total due is sent to me and I have not explicitly agreed to that, I reserve the right to refund you and refuse sale. If an offer is made and I accept it with a time frame involved for payment, a lapse of said time frame without any delivery of payment typically means the agreement has been invalidated (for example, if you say you are going to pay me [amount] on [date] and I agree to that, the deal is basically void if [date] passes and payment has not been sent) unless we both agree to the renegotiation of the payment window and there are no communication deficits.


Unsexed animals, probable sexes, and temp-sexed animals have no associated guarantees as to a specific sex. A probable male/female appears to be so at the time, but has not necessarily reached full maturity, so there is room for error. A TSF or TSM label is subject to the performance of accurate TSD and that is a shift of probability in favor of a particular sex (it often works out, but occasionally does not; such is the chance we all take). A guaranteed sex is, as stated, guaranteed. If an animal of guaranteed sex ends up revealing itself to be not of the purchased and explicitly declared sex (with sufficient evidence sent to me) down the road, it can be returned to me in a healthy state for a full refund (the general practice) or, if you are attached emotionally, we may be able to do a partial refund based on current market prices while you retain the animal.


I prefer sales to trades in almost all cases. Not seeking trades at this time.


Things we are not: a charity, a rescue, or a home for wayward tortoises that failed to make it big by venturing out West only to end up starring in tortoise mating documentaries.

Some photos from not long after this animal was found in a pen. Cleaned up, of course. Its current appearance as a larger juvenile does not show what kind of color contribution it can give to offspring, but you can see indications in these hatchling images.
