Hi! I’m the one who sent in the pictures of Ruby (the female) last year, and I’m happy to say I caught another near my apartment in Ventura. I’m sure it’s male, it has some markings but they aren’t as clear as Ruby’s were. He’s happily living in Ruby’s old enclosure, which to my luck I had finally cleaned barely a week before finding him. I’ve had him for about 2 months now, he’s quite active and loves his cricket meals. I got a new phone with a better camera so I can finally share better pictures.
