    I'm looking to get either a b.hamorii or b.baumgarteni. I like the look and supposed temperament of both so want to know others opinions. Which would you prefer?

    And, nope, can't get both! At least not yet....;)

    Hamorii. The Baumgarteni will cost more. They're both fantastic though..its a coin toss.

    The Baumgarteni is $20 more. Not bad and they are the same size. I'm leaning towards the Hamorii as I can't find them often.
