Once you've had a chance to meet a few male eastern boxies, you'll know that my Pretty Boy is only a bit above average. His main plus is that he has no damage on him to speak of, so nothing detracts from him. Almost all males are fantastically colored, though. I don't know what kind of time table you are looking at, but I give away my hatchlings each year to homes that will agree not to buy wild caught animals. I get three-toed and eastern hatchlings, but mine are never ready until late september or early october. That's just how the breeding season runs here.
