    I think the lifespan matched up with the cost world rival what Clemens made per pitch with the Yankees last year

But who knows. Either way, buyer beware. If someone is dumb enough to spend $10,000.00 (assuming thats the price intended) on it then they are the idiot more than the seller.
    But I have a feeling that the price is a typo. Who knows.
    Doesn't make it right to sell it either way.
    I'm sure they didn't intend to sell it for $10 or $100 (look at the price of a standard garg), but I could see it being a typo and he meant to type $1,000.

    One would imagine that with all that goes into putting the ad together, he'd notice the price error and correct it before the rest of the web caught on. My guess is that he did intend to price it at 10 grand and he's hoping someone will buy it before it up and dies on him.

    wow...that's all i've got.lol.

    but really, it's as much of the buyer's fault as the seller. they don't even need to know about auric husbandry to know that a 1 week 2-headed animal won't do that hot. shamw on anyone for buying and shame on the seller to try to make a profit off of a poor gecko that probably won't live long;and if it does, if you breed it you will just get normal goyles.

    I, too thought it was a typo, but when thinking about it more, I doubt they meant $10.00 or even $100.00. $1,000 is more of a possibility though. they are just trying to sell it off fast before it dies to make a quick buck. i think that's why they put"or best offer...don't be afraid to ask, the worst i can say is no." i doubt that anyone would buy something for that price, so he will take any "reasonable" offer he can get his hands on.

    just my $0.02 .

    my point of posting was that of this guy is selling an animal that is 1 week old, and it is well known that most conjoined twins do not live long, so more than likely reguardless if the animal is $10 or $1000, even $10000, there is such a high chance that the animal would die. Any person who is breeding for the love of the animal wouldnt sell this animal at such an age. It is the person who is into breeding simply for the cash that is willing to sell something so young. Hell even perfectly healthy animals, breeders do not sell off at 1 week of age, it is just one of those things you do not do.

    Pretty shady. Selling it at a week old is virtually a death sentence for it even if it had a chance to live beyond that. I highly doubt it would survive the stress of shipping/adjusting to a new home. Not a fan of this guy.
