so i havn't been keeping you guys updated on my cresteds lately but ive been making a lot of progress. my big male and female have been together for a few weeks now so im expecting eggs in the next two weeks. its their first time breeding so they most likely will produce a few clutches of bad eggs before finally producing good ones. then about a week ago i bough 10 more gekcos. they are all juveniles and around 10 grams so they still have a lot of growing today before being ready to breed. should be around next fall before most of them make weight. i got a hell of a deal on them tho. i got all 10 for $200 shipped. they came from the same guy as the other 2 little ones i got. a lot of them were worth far more than what i paid for them because he wanted to help me get a good start at breeding. he said most of them would typically sell between $60-$90 each some even more. I also am putting down money on 2 more geckos tomorrow that are absolutely insane! one is $250 and the other is $225. here are some pictures for you guys.
these are the two that are breeding together right now this is the male
and the female. she just recently shed and turned an insane bright green. its hard to see in the picture but you can kinda tell.
here are my 2 subadults who should make weight in the next few months. first the male
and the female
now here are the 10 juveniles that i got for $200 idk the sexes but ill just call them he's
first up is my favorite this guy is an insane red orange tiger almost like speckles of red around his body
next is this guy with a really nice red base color and tons of spots and he is getting more and more each day looking to be a super dal mation
this guy here is a little plain he looks brown but actually he is a bright yellow and he has a really nice reverse pinstripe down his back which would be the two dark stripes running the length of his back. alone making him worth some good money.
here is this really awesome purple harlequin i got like his purple is just crazy!
also a pretty nice purple one.
another nice red one
this one here is a beautiful bright bright yellow and has been developing tons of spots
this guy here is just super dark i suspect him to be almost black on the sides when he matures
another really nice dark one
and the last one. he is the plainest but idk what it is about him. he is different from most cresteds you see. typically they have a dark body pattern with a brightly colored back and this guy is oposite. his back is a super dark while his body is basically the same coloration but really dulled down. its almost like a ghost pattern like his body is in constant shed so the color is really dim. hard to see in the picture and he also has some pinstriping.
here are the other 2 i got from him in october. first is a 95% pinstripe with super purple body coloration.
and the other one is a little plain but he had a great price on him
and here are the two im putting a deposit down for tomorrow here is 3 pictures of the first one who is $250 and he is an insane 100% cream pinstripe hes got some stellar leg fringe and portholes
here is the second one for $225 an insane red partial pin
he decided to let both of them go for $325 shipped!
im hoping to produce some very nice babies over the winter and should be picking up a few more adults so i can get these babies rolling. i should have a few come spring time when i will start shipping and possibly have a web page up and running and as you know there are always discounts for fellow fish forumers! i look forward to your guys' feed back.
