    Which can make them hard to find

    Pristurus is another one of the sought-after genus and is hard to find but if you know the "right" people, the supply can be endless. I think that's true for most uncommon species and morphs tbh. I had a heck of a time finding C. scabrum. (P. carteri was pretty easy, oddly enough.)

    It isn't necessarily that Agamura is hard to find. It is just that people tend to keep them for a very short time then sell them off which makes it hard to track them down. Maybe it's because they have a hard time breeding them, maybe they just get bored - they aren't the most colourful gecko out there. Other times, they are kept as a small part of a collection (a trio perhaps) so the keeper doesn't always have enough specimens to form appreciable bloodlines.
    I don't know, really. It's all speculation

    Very nice pics Mike.Didnt know you were on these forums.lol.
    I have to agree with there being alot of cross breeding going on with persica.Thats why its always good to get new blood lines or trade bloodlines**hint**

    Those are some awesome little geckos. I think spider geckos look so cool with those long legs. I'd love to have a pair of them some day.

    Hot off the press (5:39 EST): Finally, this is the outcome after a week of digging. There might be another egg coming.



    It was a little scary there for a while. She hasn't eaten since.
