    Since it would be for a pet, and not for breeding purposes at this time... I would would go with the baby.
    You have a 50% chance that it MIGHT be a girl!
    Also, I love the coloring on the baby.
    And the fun part would be raising the little one up.

    I know this won't help you but...

    I have found that when I'm in your position in which I must choose between geckos-I usually buy BOTH! Gets me into trouble LOL!

    Seriously, both of those geckos are very beautiful in their own way. I guess it depends on what you want mostly, as in if you buy a baby, you can watch it grow up and change and know its personality. I love babies! Conversely, the adult male is beautiful and maybe you'd buy him and then you'd know you need a female if you ever wanted to breed him.

    Let us know what you decide!

I thought I would get some opinions, I was going to see Ramy today but he wasnt there and Im getting impatient I think the ones he has are also older though and more $. but I will still see what he has for you

    That one year old male is parctically identical to mine...

    I think you should go with the baby just so you can see how much they grow and change.

    Hatchling, just so you can grow it up yourself. I personally like growing up my own gecko's for some reason. Also you could get a female

    I agree with the rest, I'd go with the hatchling. That way if you want to breed them later you can just seek out the opposite of whatever gender you end up with while still having the perks of raising a cute little hatchling. It's really neat to compare the changes in their colors and pattern as they mature.

    I decided I only wanted a pair of Pine Islands so I purchased my first chahoua as a hatchling and let it grow. It ended up being a male so I waited awhile to find a female for him. By going with an unsexed hatchling you have the chance that it may turn out to be a female, which could save you a lot of money and searching in the future as females aren't as easy easy to come by.

    Good luck in making your decision and be sure to post plenty of pics when your chahoua arrives.
