Hornless caudalis are not that uncommon. The size of caudalis horns can be quite variable.

What is interesting with this one is the colour. Do you know where it was originally collected?

The colour is interesting and looks very xeropagarish? That plus the reduced horns could make your mind wonder......

Surely the guy you bought him from has an idea where he got the adults from that produced this captive.

I just figured he was a captive seeing as a few people have bred them before.

If they arent captives, will the locality not be on the collecting permit?

Collecting permit is almost as funny as captive bred

If this is from the guy i'm thinking of then this is a captive bred, worst case scenario captive born. But i'm sticking with captive bred.

If It came from Namibia how could it be legal? As far as I know don't Namibia not allow any exports?
