    Default Leachie price...

    I might be getting my first leachie from a guy I found locally. He is asking $300 for a Nuu Ana x Island E leachie...The gecko is 12 grams and is unsexed..Do you think this is a fair price if the gecko is completely healthy when I check it out. I have not really looked into leachie's that much because I could never afford them but I found this one locally and I thought it was a fair price. What do you guys think?

    That's about what I paid for the same cross. Who are you looking to get it from? I always thought the prices were too steep so I decided on a cross.

    I paid $500 for my Nu ana x Nu ami leachie and she was only 10 grams and 4 months old, I would say that is a fantastic price you are being offered. I would scoop babies up in a heart beat at the price if those were the prices here lol!!

    Yea thank you I totally agree Tiki....I'm trying to bargain with they guy a bit but if worst comes to worst ill take it for $300. I'm trying to read all I can about them. The one thing i've noticed thats a bit different between there care and cresteds care is that they need a bit more humidity. Is this true? Any other differences in care I should be aware of?

    Thanks

    Very nice, thanks for the pic...Is it true they don't get there true colors until there adults? Also how long does it take them to mature? If i remember correctly 2-3 years? Sorry for all the questions i'm just very curious after I read 2 or 3 good care sheets.

    I've read that these guys are slow growers. I'm not sure how long it takes. It should be fun watching it grow and change. I just love the little thing!

    I got my GT X Nuu Ana, Leachie Nutt, in may. he was 7 grams, now he's 23 grams.

    7 grams

    10 grams

    15 grams

    19 grams

    23 grams


    I was so happy when he started to get some color. I was like, "Yay! he finally looks like a leachie!"
