    She's an Arizona Blonde.
    I was originally looking for a Brazilian Black but this girl caught my eye. She's missing a leg (no idea what happened to her) which broke my heart and I couldn't leave her behind like that so I brought her home with me.

    Hi, welcome to the hobby.
    That leg will grow back after a couple of moults.

    Welcome to the forum! I also have a mature male Arizona Blond (Desert Blond is what we here in CA call them ;)). I love him. He is so laid back and easy to care for. Good luck with your girl, she's gorgeous. Like Enn said, the leg will grow back.

    Deep, dry substrate, water dish and a hide and you are all set.
