    Default Looking for some second opinions on pairings (lots of pictures)

    With the exception of a red harley project none of my geckos were purchased with any specific breeding project in mind. Now as more of my geckos are reaching breeding size I'm trying to decide what to do. I had three breeding pairs paired up earlier this year but I lost one of my females to unknown causes (Someone else was temporarily taking care of my geckos when it happened) leaving me with 2 pairs that have since been separated.

    The two remaining pairs:
    Pair 1:
    Female:


    Male:


    Pair2:
    Female (She gets much darker but is difficult to work with so I don't have a good picture yet):


    Male (he gets a little darker):


    Now, forgetting my still unsexed geckos I'm a little at loss for what to do with my remaining geckos. I don't have to breed them all, I don't mind keeping some as pets, but I would love some ideas on what I could do with what I have.

    Females:
    Annabelle - sometimes she fires up and she gets some nice red blushing


    Cleopatra


    Forest - her colors aren't really accurate in this picture. Her head is closer to an orange color and she looks almost green


    I also have a female with red undertones and a yellow female that I don't have pictures of yet.

    Males:
    Lash


    King - he's more yellow when he's fired up, he's a lot like Lash


    Jinglebells


    So do I have any decent projects I can work on with my remaining unpaired sexed geckos or should I sit back and wait until to re-evaluate breeding projects once I know what my unsexed geckos are? Thanks in advance.

    Personally, I would put King and Cleopatra together for an oddball pairing. They are both lovely!

    Otherwise, no idea. Nice collection.

    Thank you.

    I hadn't considered pairing those two together before. Cleopatra and Annabelle were my first cresties and I had no plans on breeding them initially so they don't really fit in with a majority of my collection. I was thinking Jinglebells and Forest might be an interesting pairing too. I just don't know what to do with Annabelle. She not the most exciting gecko to look at but she has some nice structure.

    i think Lash would be a better male in the first pairing than the one you have

    4.3.3.6-Crested Geckos
    1.1-Bearded Dragons
    1.1-Pitt Bulls
    2.0-Fancy Rats
    1.0-Mali Uromastyx
