I think you mean a New Guinea from Sundial.
Sundial is the way to go, congrats on choosing a breeder with an excellent reputation and knowledge of frilleds. Sundial also has a wonderful caresheet, follow that, and you can't go wrong. As far as fangs go, I have enclosed a pic of my frilly exposing his fangs, impressive (not) coming from a lizard that is only 15 inches. Just so you know, frilled dragons by nature, are very skittish, even captive bred. They have wonderful vision and can see things that we could easily miss. You must spend time with them without stressing them. They are very nice reptiles and I bet you will feel silly once you actually have yours in your hand. They are also VERY easy with taming. I can't say they won't bite, but I have never heard of that happening. When frightened, in the wild they usually run away or frill up and try to look scary to make the predator run, lol if the frill doesn't work, they run... very, fast. As a matter of fact, frilled dragons usually don't frill when they are tame, mine only frilled up once.. at a blue sharpie. They sometimes frill out a little to regulate their temperature when they get too hot. I don't think you have ANYTHING to worry about. Not that I don't like snakes, but I would much rather have a frilled dragon than a snake any day.
Btw.. my frillys favorite place to hang out with me is inside my shirt. Good luck and post pics when you get him.
