    Thanks Moire. I was afraid they were sick or something. I did notice after one of them completely sucked up the salt water dish one day that the water that dripped out of his shell afterwards looked really dirty. Who knows what they have in there.

    Yes, I have put them in with all the other species. Cheddar is more aggressive than the others... but I've never had any real agression issues.

    Oh, I forgot to add these other differences I've noticed in Calicos...

    1. Larger SP almost as large as the BP... similar to that of Aussies.

    2. NO stitch marks! Not even faint ones that all my Es have.

    3. Smooth as can be... less setae than Es.

    4. Bulkier appearence, again similar to that of Aussies... HUMMM...


    About the ''beachy'' smell... I've noticed it with a few of the Rugs I've got recently... but when I gave them the introductory salt-water bath, the smell went away. I'd just like to add that sadly, my first pink Ruggie, Rose, passed away due to PPS and horrible store conditions... CURSE PETsMART!!

    Yeah, I've noticed in pics of Calicos they do seem to have claws that are surprisingly similar in size. Someone once described them as "knuckle-draggers" too, and it kinda fits from what I've seen, lol.

    Okay... I can't see the stitch marks from the pics. The are definate... like a Ruggie? Could you get pics of the BP? Cheddar's BP appears to be smooth like a Cav... that's one of the reasons I thought he was a Cavie in the first place...

    Hiya! Sorry, I've been gone.

    Okay... it is hardly definate at all... My Es have more definate stitch marks than that. I'll try to get a pic.

    Does anyone think this might be a PP'er? The red on the legs, and the sounds of the temperment remind me of mine, who love to be hand-fed.
    I'm still trying to figure out my new guys, so let me know if you get more advice.
    Regards,
