I received this x-small Repti rock water dish and hope it was the same color as the picture (slate), but the color was red instead of slate color or desert khaki. The red doesn't go with my desert theme, it just sticks out like a sore thumb. My daughter is using it for her Emperor Scorpion's water dish (the one she had was too big). I went to the pet shop and bought one that is the muted desert khaki, it blends well with the desert theme of ledges and hides. I guess they send whatever color they have.
