    Hi there awth,

    The tails are very exciting to count, but are you going to enlighten us as to what those tails may grow in to. lol

    Hi Michelle,

    Yes, I am planning to post more pics as they develop. :)
    As for now, I can't tell you any further, as my friends are guessing what kind of dwarf they are, I can't let them see the answer.

    Yes, you are right, I have been trying to breed them for the past 2 years, I have so much problem in pairing them up. Lots of my other friend who started later than me have already sucessed. :frown:

    Anyhow, finally, I have my reward too :)
