    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    Yes he's so nice...very active and ATE..I was scared cause i took him even if he wasnt eating...but since ivan is VERY reasonable he told me that if he died cause he starved he would give me credit...well no worries now ehehe I will post some more pics when he makes a better pose...showing off..

    Right on, you are better off giving him the live food for now!! Man it was really hard to get mine off live food. It took me about 3 months, but now as long as the food is big enough he eats it. I would say he is about 4 inchs and very thick and wide. I don't expect him to get any bigger, I think they range from about 3-5 inchs. He was only a inch at most when I got him about a year ago.

    someone correct me if I'm wrong but the dwarf lions (zebra and fuzzy) get about 7inches
    Fu Manchu lions stay smaller 4-5''

    So your guy might still have lots of growing to do
