i finally heard back from someone who has DT hatchlings available for adoption. I have to call the lady back but I'm real excited. I might go down there this week to take a look at them :) :) :)

Good thing I look good in green!:D:D Very envious of you Josh. Hope you are able to get a couple.

Sure that counts... Do you have your tort with you in your apt? What area of town are you in? I am down in henderson towards the lake. Take a look at the local DT group web site they have some fun meetings.

Hi! I know this is an older post, just wondering if you still have the deserts for adoption? I sent in an app to adopt a DT about a week ago, but if you have one you'd like to pass on to me I'd love some more info!!!
Don't know if you are looking for a hatchling or an older DT but if Spikethebest doesn't have any I have 3 adult males. I am in the Inland Empire. Where are you located?
