    Welcome. Essentially the same thing. No differences in anything except price.

    What are the price veriations?

    I've read that the only difference is the the colouration of them... B&W are stripey, the Chacoan is dappled or spotty and being called is a giant is a myph as the B&W's can grow to the same size.

    Well, there's genuine confusion and outright deceit in these calls of giant, etc.

    Some selective breeding, but often a call based on what parents look like, but who knows their genotype?

    My advise is to contact Hector Berrios of Hector's Habitat in Tampa, FL, area. He line breeds and ethically so.

    My four are beautiful WCs from Tegusonly.
