    Yeah, all well and good, but who do those nice pictures belong to? Inquiring minds want to know. I think the second to the last is Walker, Len's sulcata, but haven't a clue as to the others.

    OOPS! the one before Walker is Jacques - Moozillion.

    The two aldabran babies MIGHT be Sabine's, and the little sulcata on the big sulcata MIGHT be Dean's.

    Aw, thanks, Josh. Now I can put a face to the name - a name to the face?

    Well, I guessed a couple of them correctly.
