How cute..the feet are really blue?? Great pic :) #1537287

Lori Teller June 29, 2005

The feet really are blue--the only thing I did was crop the photo a little. You can tell the females from the males by the size of their pupils-females have larger pupils, males have smaller ones.
Thanks for your comments!
