    Default Gargs, Sarasinorum, and a Question!

    I snapped a few more pics over the past few days of my gargoyles and sarasinorum so figured I'd share

    First I have a question though... About how fast do Gargoyles grow? I received my two babies last month, they were about 1.5-2 grams each (just guessing, I didn't have a scale) and 3-4 weeks old. They didn't seem to get bigger, until I weighed them on 8/3. One weighed 3.5 grams, and the other 4.2 grams. I weighed them again on 8/18 - first one weighed 4.3 grams, the 2nd one weighed 5.8 grams. Well, I weighed them one more time on 8/25, and the 1st is only up to 4.5 grams while the 2nd guy is now 6.5 grams. Now my question is, which of these rates is closer to normal? These guys aren't in the same cages BTW, so no worries of bullying or anything. Just curious.

    Now to pictures!

    Helios, Then:


    Now, 4.5g:


    Phaeton, then:

    Now, 6.5g:



    Semele, then 10g:

    Now, 13.5g:




    Notus, then 8.5g:


    Now, 10.5g:

    I don't have any experience with gargs but from reading on here I'd say those are pretty good growth rates. Beautiful geckos!

    I know, I love gargs! Can't wait till they grow though and the sara is actually really tame, I can handle him just as easily as my cresties and gargs. He's an awesome little guy.

    I'm not sure how fast their growth rate is either since mine are still so small, but I must say I absolutely love your striped garg!!

    Thanks! That is a fav of mine too... and my first gecko actually I love when it fires up best, but lately I never see it fired. It is starting to get a little orange popping up in it's stripes, I hope it gets more!

    Aww! my little gargs are so teeny. Jigsaw is about 4.5 grams and Irwin is 3.9. I hope they color up more, Jigsaw has a random little dot of orange that wasn't there before the last shed, so I'm in the same boat as you (hoping they color up more)
