Hey Simon!

I believe I have the daughter from your pair when they were bred by their previous owner...? And even as a hatchling, she's an absolute puppy. Never strikes, never bites, can't really even call her too squirmy! I think tameness is definitely genetic, as most of the clutch from that pair came out that way. So the main way to tell what kind of animal you're gonna get, see about the parents first...
My blues on the other hand...
I got the pair both from the same breeder, the female is a doll, while the male is just awful as far as temperament goes. He is absolutely gorgeous, don't get me wrong, but as soon as he thinks he might even be getting touched, he flares up and doesn't calm down for a good hour. Once he gets going he'll strike at anything that moves, to the point where I have to throw a towel over his cage to keep him from banging into the glass repeatedly...
Ya win some, ya lose some... ;)
