    You definitely didn't get ripped off - so I wouldn't be too worried about it. Especially if they are not siblings, they may become a breeding pair!

    I think AFTs look alot like leos. But their legs and bodies are kinda stubbier, and their background colors tend more towards the dark browns.

    60 is a good price. I know a place where you can get them $20 a piece but for fat tails the price usually reflects if they are WC or not.

    That's an incredible price! Especially if they are captive bred and healthy. I paid $275.00 for my guy. I did not know when I bought him that he was caught wild or had a regenerated tail. The way he was shipped to me was disgraceful and obviously traumatized the little guy even further. I have had him almost 3 month now and he still refuses to eat on his own. (I hand feed him Repti-boost)
    In other words, do NOT EVER order a reptile from Backwater Reptiles and be happy you got a hell of a deal!

    $60 is a nice price. I sell my normal fat tail babies for $40 and my amel ones for $60. I'm set up now to breed patternless, whiteout and patternless whiteout in 2014 which will go for considerably more.
