I dont know anything about bosc's but when ever i get a new reptile things i look for are a reptile thats alert, has clear eyes, all digits (fingers and toes) has relatively tight skin (no weight loss) and a bosc that is in conditions that i would be personally happy keeping mine in... now i dont know what that would be but for example i wouldnt want a small lizard on sand or bark due to impaction!

Hope that helps at all?

Luke

Hi Mate
It's horrible when you want something and it's gone, However a new reptile shop has opened in Rugby not too far from Birmingham. If I remember right it's called Elite Reptiles. Contact number 01788 578 255. Post Code CV23 0UX
They have a beauty in there, or they did last week, I was thinking of having it myself, but I am unsure at the mo what sex mine is.

You know it's very difficult to sex them at the size you are talking about?
