We always see posts about best geckos, most gorgeous geckos, geckos with huge structure. I wanna see your fattest, lovey dubbyist(as a reptile can be) gecko. The ones that like being handled or are cute to YOU in their own way. Lets give some appreciation to the pet geckos in our collections!
My crestless crestie Spook is one of my favorites. He's not one for sitting still, but I still love him a lot.
He's very pretty, but he has no crests. He's the only one I have that is purely a pet.
My girl Choco can be a bit cranky if you catch her at the wrong time. She has pretty poor head structure, but she's fires up really dark and was great for one of my breeding projects. She's pretty much lacking in crests on the right side of her head too. I was told that was most likely an injury from a previous breeding (I got her as an adult). I love her even if she is cranky and has poor structure.
Sakura is my pet quality girl. She is awesome to handle.
Ok, I like this as much as the other threads those are all awesome and really nice looking. I have a soft spot for dark geckos and spotties
Oops, double post! Sorry!
On a side note, Styx: do the geckos get to eat your prop-fruit after their photo shoot?
Her leg is fine, her foot is just curled under holding onto the cherry stem. She's pet-only because she's a mutt gecko and doesn't breed true in any sense of the word. She produces brown buckskins and the like, so I definitely would never breed her again.
lol, I ate that fruit! Sometimes though, I do feed it to them. ;3
When we first moved to where we live now (3 years ago), one of the first things we did was went to Petco and checked out their crested geckos. There was a sub-adult male there that Kyle wanted to buy, and I said no. For three months we looked at that gecko, Kyle wanting to get him, and me not. Finally one day I caved and said we could get him. That would be Arcas. He came with a bad eye, and we found out that just a few days before I let Kyle get him, a worker had taken him out to show someone and he dropped his tail.
I do love him now, and I still haven't seen many geckos that look like him. He's a permanent resident here, regardless if we ever use him for breeding again or not.
And oh by the way, he produced Mushu, who produced Alice. So yes, it's a good thing I finally decided he was awesome.
