Thanks. I purchased these guys at Unungy.com. Had them for a couple of weeks now and found a name for one already. Pesto from Goodfeathers in the cartoon tiny tunes. This little guy just wants fight everyone. I know their establishing their territories but he's funny. A lot of character.

Yes I have purchased zebras from rod47 and no I never sold or got lucky in breeding. My original zebras I purchased in Maryland. I'm from jersey I drove a total of 6 hours for them. I had 2 wild caught males and 4 juvi. 2 years ago. Everything was fine for about a year til I started finding a couple of my juvi pushed to death in my caves. I purchased from rod47 some months ago. Unfortunately hurricane sandy hit the week that I purchased them and I had 9 days without power. I have a post on it here. What I went threw. Rod47 helped me out a lot threw the ordeal. After those 9 days of hell they all were fine til a week later my females and juvi were dropping one by one. Only my males survived. Tried to make it as short as possible but if you see my hurricane post you will see what I went threw. That's why ordered my cat 5 hurricane battery operated pump and got a bigger tank. Decided to trust my males one last time and also be more prepared for power outages. Thanks again to rod47 for helping me out.
