This is my first shama about 9 month old as of March 09 so he was born around June 2008. He sings pretty decent so far and has good form when sing with straight stand. Currently he lives in bamboo cage with daily food consists of prepared insectivored food, live cricket, mealworm or super mealworm. Once in a while he will have small guppy, maggots, earthworm, and silkworm as treat. Some of his pics below.
