When taking a frill pic, most people hold them in thier hands and just pull the frill out. You may also want to take a close up pic. My two babies frilled at my camara the first few times, but soon got used to it. Also, I do not know what the pet store told you about misting and soaking them, but I would mist him two to three times per day and soak him once per day. They really need a lot of humidity. Jacob.
