Yes, that is a nice caramel corn morph. As the other poster mentioned, it could use some more meat on it's bones, and while young and growing (which that one definitely is), I would feed it an appropriately sized rodent or two that makes a noticeable bulge in it's mid-section similar to what is in the photo there about every 4 to 5 days and it will do great. I can tell the store wasn't feeding it as much as it should have been, and that can be very typical of stores. At that size and age, they will use the calories for growing, then as it fully matures you can tweek the diet as needed for maintaining an optimal body weight.

As mentioned, a female prior to breeding would need to be fed well to ovulate and produce eggs. Males don't need the extra calories when breeding season comes, but when they come out of brumation they should be fed well because they have gone a long time without food and they often stop eating altogether when spring comes because they are only interested in searching for a mate.

Good luck with it, I like the caramel gene too!
