    Default Black Project

    I've always loved the look of Halloween harleys or tricolors, whatever you'd like to call them. I have a gorgeous male that I've been unable to find a good mate for and while there is one girl (top secret for now), I managed to pick up a decent looking female recently. She doesn't have the most stunning pattern, but her base color is BLACK as night. It'll be another year at least before I produce anything, but here's a preview of 2 of the parties involved.

    Midna, the flash washed her out and she's not fully fired, but believe me she gets dark.

    awesome i cant wait. Black is by far the coolest looking base on a crested, every other color on the gecko is intensified because of the contrast.
    good luck.

    Chuck Norris is a gecko I've had my eye on for a while- I'll be keeping an eye out for your hatchlings this season!

    Brandon, I couldn't agree with you more!

    Wes, nice geckos. Be sure to post pics as the grow.

    Laura Lee, he is a handsome boy. He sired a little clone 2 years ago and I am kicking myself for it because he hasn't had the right mate to produce them consistently. This one came out of the egg and had all the right colors.

    Chuck clone:


    If everything goes as planned, I should get some nice looking kids!

    I'm pretty sure I know that girl pictured, and yes, she does get VERY dark!

    They are going to make a very nice pair!

    This is the black project I am currently working on. Gypsie laid her first egg last night (only one - this is her first time breeding and her first egg ever). Hopefully it is fertile.

    This is the male: Patches



    This is the female: Gypsie
