    I'm trying to stick to 3-letter acronyms or smaller, since those are not searchable via the forum. And I _think_ most folks have been able to figure out gex=geckos and crix=crickets (at least, I've never seen anyone ask what they mean). In the interest of keeping the list as short as possible for easy eyeballing, I will leave those two out but if I see folks asking "what's a gex??!" I'll add that one in! Thank you!

    So with this number thing pertaining to number of geckos owned is it always - Male then Female then unsexed? If so, what the possible 4th digit designate?

    Always male.female.unsexed, yes. Sometimes people put on a fourth number for eggs, but I think that's more something you won't see in ads, just something people do for kicks.
