Ornate Mountain Dragon?????

Hi all, New poster but old lurker here LOL. I am trying to identify a sweet baby at our local pet store, which they call an Ornate Mountain Dragon. I know it is not A. capra, I have one of those. This guy/girl?? is much sleeker than the capra and also far more active (my Iggie is such a load but we love him anyway LOL). The one at the store seems to have more blue/green coloring in him and I also did not see much in the way of spikes. The girl at the store swears its in the Acanthrius family, but I'm not confident she even knew the genus name to start with. Anyhow, Has anyone ever heard of a nickname "Ornate"? I do have to go back and get a closer look at him cause memory doesn't alway serve me well these days and I need to refresh it from time to time. Any help would be appreciated.

By the way, this group has been great help to the development of my capra, Thank you so much. We've had him about a month now and he is spoiled rotten. Hubby hand feeds him crickets, earthworms and superworms. I give him a spray bottle shower every morning for his drinking and shedding pleasures LOL. I built him a beautiful pool with waterfall and he never leaves his log.


Well, thanks again, and anythoughts on how to idea the other guy at the store would be appreciated.

Linda
