    Default Opinions Needed!

    If you have read my previous post, I recently purchased a pair of gargoyle geckos. I am addicted.

    Heres what I need an opinion on...

    Is 200$ for a VERYYY high red striped female that is 3 years old a good deal? Should I do it? I really need opinions..

    Hard to give an opinion without seeing a picture ... but I will say what most others will a gecko is worth however much a person is willing to pay ... I have seen juvie high red gargs go for a couple of hundred though...

    Is she proven? If the stripes are clean, $200 is a fair asking price for a female.

    It's hard to tell without pictures but if she's as pretty as you say then yes she's probably worth it.

    I paid $300 recently for a young male who has red and orange stripes.

    Veryy nice gecko! So I guess 200$ is pretty good then! Are prices between adult females and males generally the same?

    Very awesome gecko, Misty!

    Males tend to be a little more expensive because they are supposed to be a little more rare. I seem to have no trouble ending up with males so yay?

    This is going to sound like a little bit of a cop out, but if you like the gecko and think it's worth $200 then go for it. If you plan to breed the female red you're talking about, I'd work on finding a good male to compliment her too. You have a nice, strong BW stripe male, but you'll get better results by doing some selective breeding.

    I agree totally, I have to raise the BW stripe female up for that boy .

    I don't think I can afford 2 new gorgeous geckos, but maybe I could get a breeding loan if people do that sort of thing. If not, then shes gorgeous and I would still love to have her... I decided if she is still available by Friday then I will consider her sold!

    Good luck! And just because you decide to get this little girl doesn't mean you need to run right out and buy her a boyfriend.
